City Lit takeover at The Nines


To coincide with a major exhibition by emerging art talent on the Foundation diploma art and design at next door Copeland Gallery, City Lit is pleased to announce our ‘take over’ at the The Nines bar in Peckham.

Our take over aims to showcase the rich creative talent to emerge from City Lit as well as bring a taste of what we do to the creative heart of South London. Stop wondering 'what if?' and join us this April to try your hand at a variety of taster sessions including screen printing, street photography and jewellery making. Or come along to The Nines, enjoy a drink, see some art, and celebrate what happens if you engage your creative potential.
