Georgie Street, Head of Projects at Camden Town Unlimited says “We’re so excited to get Camden Inspire underway! The response from small businesses and creative performers has been amazing, with so many people eager to be involved in a celebratory event that hopefully marks the end of a difficult time. This is just the launch - we want to continue to grow the Camden Inspire brand, reaching more entrepreneurs and creatives, and giving them a platform to offer something special.”
Finn Brewster Doherty, Founder of Camden Open Air Gallery says “I can’t wait to see it all come together, Camden Town has been out of the news for too long, it’s great to businesses coming together to showcase Camden Town. I’m humbled that I’ve been offered such a platform to Launch Camden Open Air Gallery from. The repurposing of the high street is such an important topic and I hope that this year’s Camden Inspire paves the way for future events in the borough.”
