Beaconsfield is an interdisciplinary artist-run space based in the former Lambeth Ragged School, Vauxhall. Our unique historic environment consists of a large Upper gallery, a ground floor area with public facilities, including our vegetarian café, the Ragged Canteen, and the Arch, an adjacent project space. The organisation has an established presence in the local community, with schools and higher education institutions.
The Directors, David Crawforth and Naomi Siderfin, conceive Beaconsfield as a concept not a place, curating a programme of exhibitions, projects and events and working closely with artists to realise their creative aims. Research activity is rooted in a long history of collaboration with other national and international art institutions and artists.
