Bermondsey Project has been a truly collaborative venture that has become one of London’s most vital arts communities and a key player in the cultural renaissance of the area. Sadly all this will come to an end due to redevelopment of the site next year.
In September 2014 Crisis Skylight Bermondsey and the gallery will be closing and in March 2015 the remaining building users and partners, Bow Arts, Crisis warehouse, London Sculpture Workshop and London Community Furniture will also be moving on.
To mark this and celebrate all that has been achieved over the last 5 years we will be hosting an all day series of events on Friday 12th September. These events will showcase the artists, designers, makers and other partners who have contributed to the projects unique cultural mix, for more information click here. The 12th will aslo see the opening of two exhibitions. In the Ground Floor gallery Mark Wallinger will present the Best of Bow Arts, whilst on the 2nd floor, Zandra Rhodes will open ‘Made In Bermondsey’ showcasing all of the designers and makers in the building, plus the work of our own members.

We set up Bermondsey Project to stimulate debate and to act as a catalyst for our socially excluded members to re-engage and play an equal role in the project’s and our city’s creative output.
“Bermondsey Project has been a really exciting venture that has contributed greatly to the cultural life of this part of London – as well as providing unrivalled resources and facilities for ex homeless artists in London. Crisis would like to thank all of our partners who have worked with us over the past 2 to 5 years to create this unique project”
Director of Bermondsey Project, Mick Bateman
