The Residents’ Programme works with and for the South London Gallery’s close neighbours who live on Elmington, Pelican and Sceaux Gardens estates, to deliver a long-term public art and learning project.

Building on more than a decade’s work with residents locally, we deliver a variety of activities and events across our venues all year round; the SLG’s Main Gallery, the Fire Station, Art Block – the Residents’ Programme’s space on Sceaux Gardens. We also host activities and events offsite across nearby Elmington and Pelican estates. Activities include an afterschool programme, workshops, projects, community celebrations and public art commissions. 

To find out more about the Residents’ Programme please contact Polly South, Residents’ Programme Manager 

Our Resident’s Programme, Open Plan, is supported by Freelands Foundation, with additional funds from other donors.
