Arts & festivals
In May 2014, Camden Town Unlimited pioneered Camden Create, a trail-blazing three day festival celebrating the creative businesses of Camden Town. It took the form of pop-up activity in unique venues across the area, aimed at creative professionals, visitors and residents from Camden Town and beyond. Camden Create was a milestone in Camden Town’s history that made official the area’s place in Europe’s creative quarter. Talks, workshops, showcases and events contributed to telling the story of this creative community.
To mark the start of Camden Create, local architecture practice and CTU member KSR Architects designed a pop up pavilion on Britannia Junction. 640 florescent tubes supported by a theatre and stage truss system lit up the junction and signalled an appreciation for the massive variety of creative industries we are home to in Camden Town.

Following major streetscape redesign, the Points of View project encouraged members of the public to enjoy their urban surroundings. In partnership with Jakbox and Camden Council we were inviting people to upload images to contribute to an online conversation.
We launched the event with prosecco and an opera performance on the newly desgned Cobden Junction, viewed from the balcony of KOKO.
