Tate Modern will host an evening celebrating the creative culture of South London.
This month's Uniqlo Tate Late will provide an exciting opportunity to experience this part of the city anew through the eyes of artists living and working the area.
The evening's programme includes music, art, discussion, film and workshops.
The Turbine Hall will become a gigantic collage studio, with a series of hands-on workshops and drop-in sessions reimagining the landscape of South London. Visitors will be able to participate in a collective collage exercise to transform the existing landscape and realise their utopian visions of the area. Another workshop will look more closely at building materials and is inspired by images of the Brutalist architecture of iconic South London landmarks including the South Bank's National Theatre and Vauxhall's Keybridge House.
Illustrator Kazvare Made It will host an activity that pays homage to South London institution Morley's where participants will be able to create and decorate their own bespoke takeaway boxes. The evening will also feature an immersive digital display created by Girls About Peckham that will celebrate style, attitude and power.
A discussion on food production in South London focusing on urban growing, beekeeping, foraging and farming will be held in the Terrace Bar where Bermondsey Street Bees' founder Dale Gibson, urban gardener Carole Wright and Alexandro Rizzo of AN25 will discuss the idea of 'edible cities', chaired by broadcaster and activist Joel 'Jay Brave' Bravette. Tate Modern's riverside terrace will host pop up-bars serving the new 'Elemental brew' made in Bermondsey, street food stalls and a pizza oven.
