Bright Rooms is a social hub of creative practice inspired by the craft of photography. Run by Dan Fontanelli and a committed group of practising photographers and artists, we pride ourselves on our accessibility and are always looking to work within our local community using photography as a catalyst to bring people together. We also work with individuals and creative agencies providing expertise in photographic technique and image production.

Following the government’s latest advice on COVID19, it is with a heavy heart that in addition to fully closing our doors to the public, your local food traders will now be ceasing all food deliveries until further notice.

This is a difficult time for many, including our project and the 162 small, independent & incredible businesses who call Peckham Levels home. We will be looking at ways in which we can continue to give them the platform they need during this uncertain period. By following us on our socials or signing up to our newsletter, we can collectively look at ways to support Members and local traders.

We will provide updates as soon as we can.

Much love,

Peckham Levels Team x
