This year, the Camden summer exhibition will mark an exciting reimagining of the Open Open exhibition of previous years and will form part of the Camden Alive project, exploring themes of working together, sharing ideas and collaborating.
The Wiener Library’s summer 2019 exhibition displays the remarkable work of German-Jewish photographer Gerty Simon, and features many of her original prints from the 1920s and 1930s.
Anne Frank + You, presented by anti-prejudice education charity the Anne Frank Trust UK in partnership with Camden Council, presents facsimile artefacts from Anne’s life and from the Holocaust, including a life-size replica of her bedroom in the ‘secret annexe’ where she and her family hid for more than two years in Nazi-occupied Amsterdam.
Love Camden loves its local talent. We aim to celebrate everything cultural in the borough, from Hampstead to Kilburn, from the British Library to that little café around the corner - we are always out to show what Camden has to offer. As part of this we launched our Camden Close-Up series: interviews with artists, thinkers, entrepreneurs and downright interesting figures that live, work or are inspired by the borough.
Camden Council has announced the Community Festival Grant recipients for 2019-20. This year over 48 community festivals received financial support from the Council to the sum of £35,000. The grants were awarded by the Council following submissions from organisers and judging by an independent panel supported by Voluntary Action Camden.
You are invited to join us to celebrate the diversity and strength of the communities in Camden. The event will bring together residents, community groups, businesses, schools and staff to discuss how we can work together to unite our neighbourhoods in the week we're due to leave the EU.
