Deptford X – now that’s how to do an arts festival. Scattered throughout a huge list of events, happenings and artworks are a TON of intriguing things. We love the idea of a ‘festival haircut’ inspired by WWII debris, the ‘atmospheric video installation exploring parallels between representations of the urban fox and urban youth’ sounds right up our alley, and Deptford-themed horror stories read by library staff? Yes please! Louise Ashcroft, Shawanda Corbett, Georgia Lucas-Going, NT, David Steans and Laura Yuile are the featured artists but with nearly 500 fringe artists contributing the whole of SE 8 is going to be awash with interest for the whole ten days.
