Peckham Platform is a creative and educational charity based in a gallery on Peckham Square, SE15.
Peckham Platform became independent at the start of 2014 and was awarded Arts Council national portfolio funding six months later. As an organisation it believes that communities can inform and shape their engagement with their locality by working with contemporary visual artists. Its programme of commissions creates meaningful and accessible social arts practice for Peckham and beyond, providing an expansive platform for different voices and debate, bringing contemporary social practice alive.

Our OPEN exhibitions to date have seen more than 750 artworks adorn our gallery walls in fantastic displays of local talent.
OPEN16 is an opportunity to celebrate all things creative in Peckham and invites people that have a connection to the area to contribute artworks to exhibit together at Peckham Platform. This year we are working in partnership with Peckham Townscape Heritage Initiative and have introduced a theme: Celebrating Peckham’s Heritage – place, people, culture.

Craft Cut Construct invites you to respond to the daily goings on in Peckham Square through a series of playful workshops, giving you the chance to develop skills, explore different artistic media and create work for this year’s #OPEN16 Exhibition (taking place 8 September – 31 October at Peckham Platform).
Craft Cut Construct is a series of week-long free creative drop-in sessions taking place throughout August at Peckham Platform. Each week we will try out a different way of making, documenting our results and discoveries along the way.
