A festival of art, creativity & discovery


Art Social returns this September for its second year, presented by our friends, The House of St Barnabas.

The festival will open its doors at 1 Greek Street from Monday 21st – Sunday 27th September and will feature an installation in Soho Square, a free public art programme and a full weekend of events, pop-up lectures, performance art, film screenings, workshops, live music and DJs inside the House.

The festival features a free public art programme between Soho Square and the historic Greek Street townhouse, as well as a weekend programme brimming with creativity and ideas. There will be installations and film screenings throughout the week, culminating in a colourful weekend of thought-provoking events, designed to inspire.

This year’s festival is curated around the theme of Maslow’s Pyramid of Needs, a theory that portrays human needs in a pyramid shape, with physiological needs at the bottom and self-expression through creativity at the top.

Each artist for Art Social ’15 has been asked respond to an element of the pyramid, collaborating in a vibrant, diverse and participatory week of creativity.
