Camden Arts Centre is a place for world-class contemporary art exhibitions and education. With artists at the core of the programme, Camden Arts Centre strives to involve members of the public in the ideas and processes of today's artists, and the artists who inspire them. In addition to gallery spaces, the building comprises of studios which schools can use free of charge and in which people of all ages and abilities can learn skills in ceramics, painting, drawing and writing as part of the courses programme. In 2015/16 we celebrate our 50th birthday. Find out more here.
The exhibition and education programmes are developed with equal significance and are continually intertwined. The year-round programme includes exhibitions, artist residencies, talks and events, school and artists’ projects, courses and off-site activities, ensuring Camden Arts Centre remains a dynamic place for seeing, making and talking about art.
Exhibitions feature emerging artists, international artists showing for the first time in London, significant historic figures who have inspired contemporary practice, and artist selected group shows relevant to current debate.
Residencies develop artists’ practices with practical support, resulting in new work and public participation.
Projects are initiatives to encourage people of all ages, abilities and areas of interest to engage with contemporary art.
Events engage audiences in a regular series of talks and discussions, film screenings and live art performances.
Courses teach creative and technical skills to people of all ages and abilities, in a range of specialist mediums.
