Deptford Stories, an arts festival celebrating the lives and legends of Deptford will launch on Friday 31st October & Saturday 1st November. It will then continue until 16th November by appointment only. Bringing together art, theatre, music and history of the past, present and future of Anthology Deptford Foundry, the festival will take place in the empty warehouses and workshops of the former site of Arklow Road Trading Estate.

Curated by experimental arts space, Harts Lane Studios (Cristiana Bottigella, Sigrún Sverrisdóttir, Tisna Westerhof), and produced by Greenspace on behalf of Anthology; Deptford Stories will be an eclectic array of mixed-media installations, sculpture, prints, light displays, textiles and tiling. From James Capper and Katie Surridge's imposing industrial and structural pieces to Cedric Christie's iconic light-boxes and Margot Sanders' site-specific painting portraying the frail beauty of human bonds, the artwork is varied and engaging. The event is organised in collaboration with Goldsmiths, University of London.

The show includes; Melissa Alley | Hermione Allsopp | Victoria Arney | Vanya Balogh | Clive Burton | James Capper | Edward Chell | Cedric Christie | Carla Cruz | Alex Culshaw | Mikey Georgeson | Lauri Hopkins | May Yeonok Jang | Caroline Lambard | Cedar Lewisohn | Teresa Leung | Amanda Loomes | Holly Owen | Matt Parsons | Sam Risley | Ellen Camilla Rose | Pascal Rousson | Paul Sakoilsky | Margot Sanders | Katie Surridge | Paul Tecklenberg | Oscar Tornincasa | Paul Tucker | Tisna Westerhof | Rosalie Woods |

There will also be a unique community quilt on display, which features designs from Childeric Primary School, New Cross.
