The Edge of the Centre

The Edge of the Centre

The Edge of the Centre is a series that invites artists and organisations working in the areas surrounding the Barbican to curate and co-produce events in our venues.


It takes its cue from London’s cultural histories, diasporas, sites of memory, archives, curiosities and folklore.

Roaming across our venues and artforms, The Edge of The Centre features talks, performances, essays and exhibitions which explore the boundaries of where London’s art-making, culture and everyday life coincide.
