Push The Envelope – Further

Wednesday 25 July 2007
From 1.30pm
Free – all welcome


A cultural quarter in Vauxhall/Kennington? How likely is that?

The truth is, it’s not so far fetched. When plans for an Artisan School, an Arts and Crafts Museum and Damien Hirst’s proposed Newport Street development are positioned against galleries, art spaces and studios already flourishing in the area, the idea is not only a distinct possibility, but almost a reality.

Push the Envelope Further picks up from discussions at last year’s PUSH THE ENVELOPE symposium to focus on local initiatives already underway.

A local walkabout will be followed by the first public presentation of the Kennington Quarter proposal and a panel discussion about the future of Leftbank Artists’ Network.

PUSH THE ENVELOPE — the publication will be launched at 5.30pm and available free of charge to all those attending the event (usual price £5).

Push the Envelope Further is jointly organised by Beaconsfield, Riverside Community Development Trust and Lady Margaret Hall Settlement.


1.30pm — walkabout: meet outside St Peter’s Church, 310 Kennington Lane, SE11 5HY
3.15pm — arrive at 22 Newport Street (Beaconsfield)
3.30pm — launch presentation: Kennington Arts Quarter
4.30pm — discussion: Developing Leftbank Artists Network
5.30pm — publication launch: PUSH THE ENVELOPE
