or the first time this weekend (8th-10th June), Peckham Levels are opening up their lower five floors to members of the public. They’re using the opportunity to show off all the new members to their collective and shine a light on the cutting-edge local artists, designers and musicians who now call the former multi-story carpark home.
It won’t be business as usual, as their creatives will be hosting a series of exhibitions, workshops, interactive installations and live music across all seven levels, with ramps to explore over 55 studios and workspaces.
The first floor, which is home to jewellers, fashion designers and artists, will give visitors the chance to discover crafts and meet those who make them. Level 2 will showcase the space’s musical offerings with installations of sound and light for members of the public to engage with. Powered by Ableton Live, visitors will be able to ‘trigger’ samples created in the studios of Will Wadam of Keep a Light, Bertie Styles, Santiago Sounds and Peckham Rye Music Festival.O
n Level 3 Intoart’s inclusive art and design studio for people with learning disabilities will be hosting film screenings of short films, while floor 4 will see Doc Cotton opening the doors to their seamstesses at work and AO Architecture host 30-min drop in sessions.
And of course, the upper two floors will be as pumping as ever with DJs, street food and cocktails across their two bars, restaurant and café. There will also be £1 coffees all weekend, wine tastings, vegan pizzas and Gong Bao Chicken Bowls from Hao Hao Chi. Cafe Odyssey will also be hosting a panel talk, yoga classes will take place on Level 6 and free acupunctures and massage sessions will be on offer in Level’s newly opened treatment room.
