Themselves: Warehouse Festival presents a weekend of cultural interaction in their upcoming event, bringing together a variety of performers, artists, musicians and speakers in the creation of a communal and engaging space for visitors.

Promoting ideas of discussion, participation and experimentation, Themselves encourages the sharing of ideas in a creative environment, breaking down borders of separation. A variety of events are occurring in the Copeland Park warehouse over the weekend, with an open exhibition space, an ongoing performance installation, workshops, music and theatre evenings and cinema screenings creating a collaborative space for all.

Involving around 150 contributors, the event is a culmination of numerous ideas and voices, giving these individuals a space to communicate ideas and opinions that would otherwise be unheard. This vibrant network of creatives, academics and artists promotes inclusivity and freedom of expression. From the experimental rock band HMLTD to the charity Speakers Trust, the expansive programme accommodates and inspires involvement in a variety of events.

Themselves: Warehouse Festival will see the large Peckham-based site divided into three areas. The first is an exhibition space displaying the work of local and student artists, featuring the aforementioned installation and a large film screen. In addition to this, the idea of art as therapy is explored in a smaller immersive room that encourages contemplation. The other indoor section of the warehouse is a communal space consisting of a bar, a line-up of local musical acts, and a rolling stage where circus performers will provide entertainment for visitors. Outside, discussions and panels are to occur, and charities and local community groups will take this opportunity to converse both local residents and people who are unfamiliar to the area, creating a welcoming hub of activity. The world of virtual reality can also be explored with their interactive space exploring the role of technology and gaming in the contemporary world.

Themselves: Warehouse Festival opens 29th March at 4 pm until late. The art exhibition and installation, along with screenings with Deptford Cinema and a variety of workshops and events will take place until 31st March. To find out more, click here, and tickets can be purchased here.
