The Peckham Platform’s Youth Platform collaborates with internationally recognised Swiss artist Marc Bauer. The 13–19 year-olds Youth Platform and Bauer have developed displays through a series of workshops exploring personal identity, gender politics and place.

Resulting from the workshops, Bauer will create 3 large-scale multi-media artworks for public view located in the window of Peckham’s Aylesham Centre, in the window of Café Royal in Piccadilly and within Frieze London 2017. Launching as part of Peckham Festival 2017 this September, the Aylesham Centre installation featuring video and artworks by Youth Platform will be on show until November and is being delivered with generous multi-year support from Paul Hamlyn’s Explore & Test grant. In addition, Bauer will produce an extensive wall-drawing for Café Royal which will be on display parallel to the artist’s own work for the duration of Frieze Projects, the non-profit programme of new artist commissions at Frieze London (5 to 8 October 2017), supported by the LUMA Foundation.

Peckham Platform is changing

While building work begins on our new gallery on Peckham Square, we’re pleased to confirm the first of our off-site projects, set to open across multiple venues in Peckham and London throughout 2017 and 2018.

Peckham Platform will take over the new gallery space in the redeveloped Peckham Square, set to open in 2019. Our new permanent home will have more space, better facilities and a greatly expanded programme of free
exhibitions, learning and research.

We are building a larger and more ambitious Peckham Platform, dedicated to championing social arts and providing an inspirational and engaging creative space. You can influence the future of Peckham’s vibrant cultural hub by participating in forthcoming public events.

We want to say a huge thank you to all of the visitors and supporters who have been part of Peckham Platform, and we hope you will join us as we create a bigger and better Peckham Platform together.
