2007 imageThe Collision Festival took place in September 2007 for the second time in Area10 Project Space Peckham. It hosted more than 70 artists of different disciplines, and several art collectives, with over 700 people from all corners of London attending.

This year saw the transformation of the big wharf building, as dark corridors led people into the space, and giant screens divided it to create intimacy for work to be shown.

Fixed installations were situated around the space for the duration of the festival while the live program changed every night. The opening night focused on moving image and projections, the second night was devoted to music and sound, while the closing night brought on an explosive celebration of performances, bands and large-scale projections.
