The South London Gallery has been given the Grade II-listed former Peckham Road Fire Station, which is only 100m from our main site, by an anonymous benefactor. Our vision is to transform this derelict building into a new model of contemporary art space and annexe to the main site. The Fire Station will be a mixed-use, accessible building across four floors, including new galleries, education and event spaces, an open kitchen and a new archive room. The new building will be a place where visitors can learn and engage with contemporary art in a variety of different ways through exhibitions, events and participation in fun creative projects, providing a new hub for the burgeoning creative community of Camberwell and Peckham.
We have raised £3.6m of our overall £4m fundraising target to restore the Fire Station. We now urgently need to raise the final £400,000 in order to open the building to the public in September 2018. Please donate today to support us at this historic and transformative moment in the SLG’s history.
