Summer Takeover

Summer Takeover

10 September 2017

Join us to celebrate our annual Summer Takeover, an afternoon of free, fun artist-led activities for families at Camden Arts Centre in the Galleries, Ceramics and Drawing Studios, Café and Garden.

Taking inspiration from the current exhibitions by Daniel Richter and Jennifer Tee, we have invited artists India Harvey, Phil Root and Soofiya Andry to unravel some of the ideas, techniques and processes found within the shows. In addition, members of the Camden Arts Centre Education Team will lead a fun and interactive tour of the exhibitions.
