Southwark Arts Forum (SAF) helps artists, arts organisations and creative industries in Southwark to excel, and to have a greater impact on their local community. We do this by providing a wide range of networking, information and advice services such as our events, e-bulletins and one-to-one sessions. We also advocate for the arts in the borough. SAF has over 3000 members. It was set up by local artists in Southwark in 1987. We are a rich creative network widely known in Southwark and beyond.

Our members are a creative bunch! They range from visual artists, musicians, filmmakers, dancers, photographers, poets, film producers, graphic designers, theatres, galleries, studios, arts organisations, community groups, education institutions, council staff, local businesses and lots of other creatives. Members come from all stages of careers and diverse backgrounds. Come and in!
