This summer, a new Camden Schools Art Biennale hosted by Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London, with Camden Council and Camden Learning, is coming to Granary Square, King’s Cross. From 11 to 17 July, visitors to the free exhibition will be able to explore hundreds of artworks by Camden schoolchildren, with creative work by every school and every key stage of learning – from primary and special schools to secondary schools, through to A-level. Open from 11am to 6pm daily, the exhibition is set to become a highlight of the borough’s cultural calendar as an ongoing sister-event to the much-loved Camden Schools Music Festival.
