Camden Inspire: a summer series of cultural events ending in a festival

Art, talks and local storytelling, plus a two-day street party

We’re big fans of Camden Inspire, which is now an annual fixture taking over Buck Street on the first weekend of September (details below).

But before all that, there’s a series of talks, exhibitions and panel discussions that are free to attend, like the festival itself.

Summer Series events
  • Thursday 17th August sees MUMS SECRETS: THINGS I NEED TO ADMIT, where you can join a group of local mums for a free storytelling and sharing project, connecting with local mothers over shared experiences.
  • The following Thursday 24th Aug look out for INSPIRING TALKS: DIVERSITY IN THE PERFORMING ARTS, a discussion about the obstacles – and hopes for the future – for diversity and representation in the creative industries.
  • On Saturday 26th there’s a TOUR OF GLOBAL GENERATION’S STORY GARDEN, which offers a chance to get behind the scenes at this inspiring local organisation (and perhaps to volunteer) as they continue to transform vacant urban spaces.
  • Then later in September on Thurs 21st come back for Part 2 of MUM SECRETS: THINGS I NEED TO ADMIT, the second workshop in this series, giving participants a chance to share their story on stage surrounded by fellow sharers.
Somers Gallery Exhibition Series 

Chalton Street in Euston is hosting work by local artists as part of the Camden Inspire series.

Exhibitions within the series include:

  • 11th – 13th August Daisy Jones

Camden Inspire Festival 2nd-3rd September 

This two-day event across Buck Street and Stucley Place brings a diverse local musical line-up including Awate, Amy Gadiaga and Gigi Williams, plus poetry and spoken word from the likes of Tife Kusuro, Oli Isaac and Kiki Gilbert. 

Food comes from local heroes such as Peron No. 4, Lost Souls Pizza, Vibe ‘n Go and Cheezello

Meanwhile you can book your free places at the workshops hosted by Camden Black Creatives, London School of Mosaic and The Place, to name a few. 

We’ll have more previews on the festival soon. See you there on the 2nd and 3rd September.
