In the ‘hood: Camden New Wave Festival

There’s never a dull moment in our Camden neighbourhood. Something wonderful is being installed in our piazza and will be revealed in early November. Every week there’s a new yummy treat to try at KERB. The skyline behind King's Cross looks different every minute with all the construction. Today there is a giant crocodile in our front entrance hall.

And this week Camden New Wave festival is staging a bunch of wonderful events across the borough to celebrate creativity. 

From making sessions with artists Tracy & Hobbs on the Floating Cinema to 3D printing at Swiss Cottage Library – there’s something fun for everyone to do.

Floating-Cinema

Phantom Railings is a sound installation on Malet Street Gardens. This guy seems to enjoy it.

The public are welcome to add sound recordings via mobile phone to Bridge Links, a soundscape project along Regent's Park towpath.  If field recording is your thing, check out our excellent environment and nature sound archive

Over at Central Saint Martins you can play on a digital PaintWall that mimics the colour of any object held close, allowing users to build up images, text, and pattern with everyday objects – hats, bags, books. This could make for a more interesting lunch break.

I hope you check out these events and stop by the Library on the way. Our free exhibition Picture This: Children’s Illustrated Classics is delightful, our coffee is good and there’s never a shortage of creativity.

Camden New Wave until 3 November
