The theme for the 2015 E17 Art Trail festival is Storytelling.
You do not have to consider the theme in your own work or events, it's just fun to think about and promote the festival with a new angle each year. If however, your work or practice incorporates a strong thread of storytelling (which in it's broadest meaning could involve music or illustration for example) do let us know.
A huge thank you to all the volunteers who worked on last year's festival behind the scenes and as festival ambassadors out on the streets.

In 2014 we are celebrating 10 years of the E17 Art Trail! (31 May - 15 June 2014)
Explore artists’ studios and visit flagship galleries: discover art in open-houses & unconventional spaces: encounter pop-up performances or explore your own creativity at an artist-led workshop: 2014 E17 Art Trail takes places across 16 action-packed days from Saturday 31 May to Sunday 15 June in Walthamstow London E17.
This year, E17 Art Trail celebrates its 10th birthday with an even bolder arts feast. The first E17 Art Trail in its new summer slot, Artists Open Houses stand at the heart of the Art Trail and are an enduring and evocative expression of all that is so rewarding about living in a creative community.
Our 2014 theme – 'inhabit' – is a way of marking this with a programme strand that considers not just where we live but how.
