Overground is Peterborough's free live arts jam.

 Jam is on 17th Auguat 2013

This year's Jam at the Green Backyard will be bigger and better than ever with more artists and things to do. We'll be fundraising for the Save The Green Backyard campaign to help secure the site for years to come.

We'll also be involved in a few other events in the Summer calendar. If you want a space to paint at this summer, send us a message on the Join Us page!

We always have live music at the jam, so anyone interested in performing, DJ'ing or anything else, let us know and we'll do our best to get you a spot!

Overground artists will also be taking part in other events this year. Dates and more info will appear in the events and news section as we get it. If you want to keep up to date on future events and details of 2013's Jam, then join our Facebook page for updates.

About Overground;

The not-for-profit, annual live art event sees a wide variety of new work by talented artists, being created and performed live in a festival atmosphere. You can expect to see graffiti and street art as well as performance art, illustration, poetry, craft like you've never seen it before, sculpture, music and whatever else people come up with inbetween.

So anyone can register to take part and we encourage a collaborative approach to the work.

Our ultimate goals are to get artwork out to audiences, encourage artists and performers to push creative boundaries and learn about new styles and disciplines and to encourage new talent to develop in the city. We also aim to help artists promote and sell their work... oh yeah, and have lots of fun doing it!








Join Us? We need Artists (and volunteers) for the overground arts jam as well as our other future events.
