CRXSS PLATFXRM is an arts platform showcasing under the radar Street Culture, curated by Peckham born and raised, Ivan Blackstock. The ever-growing event has been held at Copeland Gallery three times since their launch in 2016, and we are thrilled to welcome them back this November for the 4th edition of NSF CRXSS PLATFXRM.

Creative Director Ivan Blackstock says:

“I am excited to bring NSF CRXSS PLATFXRM back to Copeland Gallery for a third time. We took over Copeland Gallery during Peckham Festival 2017 and had such a good response from the local people that we decided to bring the event to Peckham each year since then. It feels great to bring something home, especially as my mum lives around the corner so I can pop in for a cup of tea!

NSF CRXSS PLATFXRM Festival is about celebrating street culture and providing a link to the mainstream. I want to give incredible unseen artists from around the country to Peckham a platform to introduce and share their creative voices. Come down on 8 and 9 November for dance, music, visual art, film and more. I look forward to seeing you there.”

The exciting line-up platforms the pioneering Street Culture talent shaping today’s cultural landscape. Witness a world premiere from Ukrainian dance duo Liza Riabinina and Kate Luzan with a fusion of dance forms including voguing, contortion and Hip Hop, all in heels, in a one-off live performance on Saturday 9 November.

Experience a multitude of diverse artists including disruptive embroideress Nicole Chui, contemporary painter Karimah Hassan and NTS Radio DJ AQWEA. The programme also includes two special international performances from Nigerian afro beat artist Wavy The Creator. Wavy’s distinctive and unorthodox sound is energising the new wave music scene throughout Africa.
