NEW-X-ING is an ambitious independent programme aiming to integrate New Cross’s Community and Institutions. One of the first ideas of a street amphitheatre is being implemented with two weeks of performances coming up at the end of the summer. Share the excitement of a street-stage offering free public performances from Sept 21 to Oct 6 2012. Contributors range from Blue Grass to Experimental Sound-bending, Trinity Laban choreographic Interventions to children’s street-dance, from spoken poetry to political debate. The area outside Goldsmiths Library (on Lewisham Way just by the main Goldsmiths building) is a natural gathering point which is easily visible to bus passengers, car drivers, pedestrians and students. For 16 days this autumn there will be the perfect excuse to sit on the steps and enjoy some local culture. New X-ING Relay has been developed by Artmongers and funded by Awards for All (part of the Big Lottery fund). The program is in partnership with Goldsmiths College and the London Borough of Lewisham as well as numerous community individuals and organisations. The Relay is part of New X-ING - a program of creative interventions to shake new life into New Cross led by local artists and community activists Artmongers. Our ambitions include a landmark road crossing to overcome the tyranny of the A2, community gardening in unexpected places and a permanent public performance space.
