Bestow: 1st - 16th September 2012
The E17 Art Trail 2012 officially ended on 16th September. Thank you to all our visitors who took to the trail to unwrap the creative gifts and offerings of so many resident and visiting artists.
The E17 Art Trail will be back 30 May - 15 June 2014. We are moving the dates from our traditional time in September to enable us to better support the huge and growing network of participating artists and organisations. With 18 months between art trails we are busy developing exciting plans for 2014.
Details on how to register your event and to be listed as part of the next E17 Art Trail programme will be announced in December 2013.
In the meantime you will be able to enjoy other projects we are working on for 2013 which have been developed from strands of the E17 Art Trail over the last couple of years. Look out for Appetite, a creative food and art festival this June and a word festival in October, Words Over Waltham Forest. Find out more at www.artillery.org.uk

The E17 Art Trail is an annual festival and independent artist run project. It provides a framework for artists and makers to exhibit and promote their work and art practice. The neighbourhood of E17 opens their doors for 16 days and invites you in.
bestowWhen deciding the theme for the E17 Art Trail 2012 we knew we had to find an expression to reflect the generosity of all who make it such a rich festival programme. Bestow giftwrapped the invitation of over 3500 practising artists and creative contributors, an invitation to enjoy the vision, to relish the gifts and to consider the ideas of our creative community. Doors opened revealing new compositions in artists workspaces and homes. Poets, playwrights, musicians, and comics captivated audiences with stories old and new. Visitors encountered art that is joyous, challenging, confrontational, delightful, humourous, distinguished, ambitious and enterprising.
We hope bestow brought you memories you will treasure.
The full programme for the E17 Art Trail 2012 is available online on this website and you can download the app in Andriod, iPad and iPhone format.
