About

An urban beach under a flyover, a pop-up art school, and five Mexicans soaring through the air like birds. There are just a few of the wonders from last year's InTRANSIT Festival.

Each summer, InTRANSIT provides exciting avenues for people of all ages to explore and enjoy creative experimentation and new artistic collaborations in places and spaces across Kensington and Chelsea.

Over ten dazzling days in June, artists present wondrous interpretations of each year's theme: from 2015 this was “Utopias And Realities", or Paradise On Earth; and the 2016 theme has just been announced as ‘Strange Bedfellows: The Attraction of Opposites’.

The programme is curated to provide invaluable opportunities for emerging talent, but also to develop new collaborations with established artists from Britain and abroad. InTRANSIT 2016 runs from Friday 17 to Sunday 26 June.

InTRANSIT 2014 and 2015 were curated by production and design team O'Neill/Ross, experienced producers of site-based work, working closely with artists to bring the streets and less-familiar spaces of Kensington and Chelsea alive each summer. Helen Scarlett O’Neill and Harry Ross were the design and production team behind Secret Cinema between 2010 and 2013. They also devised the London Contemporary Orchestra’s RPS-nominated immersive concert series Imagined Occasions and are the duo behind Fruit for the Apocalypse and Surrealist Taxi.

InTRANSIT Festival is funded and coordinated by the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea Arts and Culture Service and was launched in 2007 to encourage artists and organisations to make art and performance outside of traditional exhibition spaces. Now in its tenth year, the festival presents an ever expanding stable of emerging and established artists from Britain and abroad to bring the streets and hidden spaces of Kensington and Chelsea alive each summer.
