Camden residents back Camden's bid to become London Borough of Culture
In summer 2017, Jenni Lomax stepped down as Director of Camden Arts Centre, after 27 years at the helm. Lomax became Director of Camden Arts Centre in 1990, and established a forward thinking programme of international exhibitions, artists’ residencies and education projects, all of which have artists and their ideas at the core. Love Camden spoke to her about her time at the Centre, taking its building as a starting point for a conversation about memories, legacy and the core concepts that make the Centre what it is today.
Dermot O’Leary has added his backing to Camden’s London of Borough of Culture bid as a patron of the London Irish Centre.
