About this event

Crossing Borders celebrates the diversity of our neighbourhood and the people that live in it. Crossing Borders is organised every year in partnership with local organisations working with refugees, asylum seekers and people who are newly arrived Forest Hill.

Join us for a full day of performances, workshops and art and craft activities open to all. Here are some of the actvities you can expect to find on the day:

  • Join Southwark Day Centre for Asylum Seekers in our amazing Conservatory for tea-tasting, kite-making, a fashion show and more.
  • Collaborate with Soundmix and create lyrics, rhythms and chords in workshops throughout the day. Stick around for the final performance in the Conservatory.
  • Enjoy innovative dance performances from the Latin American Parents Association
  • More activities and partners to be announced soon


This event is a response to the Horniman World Gallery from multiple perspectives.
