Camden’s Arts and Tourism team manages strategic developments for creative activity in the borough, the hire of public spaces for events and all filming, outside broadcast and photography in the borough.
Camden is one of the most thriving areas for the arts in Europe. The borough is home to many of the UK’s leading arts and cultural organisations.
We work with these organisations and the diverse communities to ensure that Camden remains one of the UK’s most exciting visitor destinations and an inspiring place to live and work.
Frequently Asked Questions
- Can you help me find a space for my art exhibition?
There is a list of galleries, with contact details, within the borough available here. If you are interested in using vacant properties; like most central London boroughs, space is at a premium for Camden so the Council doesn’t generally have many empty properties available. It may be worth contacting local churches, cafes etc - spaces not generally used as exhibition space but which could be turned to this purpose. They are often happy to support local artists and this may bring in a new sector of the public to their business or venue.Camden Town Unlimited run our pop-up shops scheme, which offers central retail space to creative entrepreneurs in the borough. They run all Camden’s schemes to make use of empty properties in the borough so will know of any available spaces coming up.
