Try something new, in the spotlight.
A multi-arts festival is offering young artists and creatives to try something new, find fresh collaborators and grow their artistry through music, spoken word and art events.
Streatham Space Project is hosting Come Through, which will launch its festival on September 16.
Come Through features shows, workshops and open-mics from South London’s hottest young artists and producers, including hip-hop and drill open mic night Tracks on Tap, interactive painting classes from Portland & Pals’ Sip & Paint, spoken word and comedy from Poetic Unity’s The Laugh Word and chill vibes and performances from A Night with Lara and Caleb: The Lab.
Creative director, Tash Brown, said: “We’re so excited that Come Through will be supporting young artists and creatives to meet each other and try something new in a safe and fun environment.
“The festival’s four featured events have all become popular with young people here at Streatham Space Project, and the hope for Come Through is that each event’s audiences will cross-pollinate and discover something new, while honing their own artistic skills along the way.”
Tracks on Tap are known as London’s most supportive community for up-and-coming hip hop, grime and drill artists.

They help to support artists online and help them develop in real life through live performance.
There are open mic spots available at every show and from there you could be selected to be a support act or headline the next event.
If you are looking more to the canvas, not the mic, Cam Portland, from Portland + Pals Sip & Paint, is an abstract expressionist artist based in South London.
Portland+Pals Sip & Paint was a concept Cam and his friends came up with to influence more black people and people of colour to get involved with indoor creative activities.
Plus, the artworks you create could be featured in Portland + Pals’ exhibition launch.
Streatham Space Project will be hosting these events and many more between September 16 and December 6.
