The world’s largest arms fair returns to London this September.
We’ll be back with our award-winning and provocative art exhibition and programme of events.
Armed with art, comedy and music, we will expose the arms fair and support those working to challenge it.
We’re returning to London 3 – 13 September with an ambitious art exhibition and programme of events at Maverick Projects, to coincide with the arms fair.
Our Art the Arms Fair exhibition is being held across three exciting venues in Peckham:
► Safehouses 1 & 2 (137 & 139 Copeland Rd) for the main exhibition, 12pm–6.30pm on the final day, Friday 13 September
► AMP Gallery (1 Acorn Parade) for Peter Kennard’s takeover, 12pm–4pm on the final day
► AMP Studios (897a Old Kent Rd) for more art, 6pm–8pm on the final day
**Please note that we are closing some of our venues a bit earlier than usual on the final day – we’re a volunteer-run organisation and need to give ourselves the time to pack up**
Find more information about the exhibition, including locations, how to get there and accessibility.
It is a free exhibition! Donations are welcome.
