For this year’s Deptford X, Creekside Artists were selected as ‘Artists in Residence’ for the festival launch. Artists Necole Schmitz, Victoria Trinder, Emma Fenton and Sofie Pinkett transformed a wall of The Albany Theatre into a giant blank canvas and encouraged attendees to draw on the walls, creating a large collaborative drawing inspired by aspects of the local area and their day-to-day lives. Drawing continued over the weekend in the Albany foyer, with artists Victoria Trinder, Caroline Underwood, Sofie Pinkett and David Ravenwood on hand for ideas and inspiration. Passers-by were encouraged to step in and participate or watch the artists at work. The completed work is on display in the foyer and cafe of the Albany, throughout Deptford X.
