sixtyseven is a curatorial collective group of cultural practitioners, artists, writers and curators based in south-east London developing projects that explore alternative learning structures, strategies for collaboration and community engagement. sixtyseven are currently working on projects between the UK, Italy, Czech Republic and Slovakia.
The collective grew from informal conversations around our shared interests and individual creative practices. We now organise a weekly ‘Creative Community Forum’ to support one another to develop new projects and research through sharing our individual strengths, skills and knowledge.
We are currently developing a number of projects in collaboration with Deptford Cinema, Deptford X, Cherche Encore, The Italian Cultural Institute, Galleria del Carbone (Italy), among others.
