July Trail News

July 4th 2012

Wow.  All the registrations for the 2012 E17 Art Trail year are in.

We've counted over 350 events on offer this September!  180 venues in E17 will be hosting the most diverse range of art forms to date and with up to 3000 local people contributing to the programme. So as you can imagine we are fairly busy creating a bumper edition 36 page festival guide!

We will very soon be able to let you know all the details.
Our website will announce the festival programme on 1st August and the Trail Guides are expected to arrive around the same time. We will be distributing them all over Waltham Forest and beyond.

Still trying to digest everything we've got here but some strands we have seen include technologies, food, live arts, sound, spoken word, walks, theatre, street performance, fairytales, giant gifts, miniature houses and lots of opportunities to try things out for yourself. Thousands of orginal artworks will be exhibited all across E17. Plenty to awaken all the senses.

We can't wait.

July Social Evening

Our monthly networking and social event for local creative practitioners, art trail participants and supporters is next wednesday, the 11th July.

Join us in the Rose and Crown, 53 Hoe Street, E17 4SA from 6.30 - 9pm. 

Our socials are a relaxed opportunity to share plans and discuss emerging ideas for the E17 Art Trail in 2012 and more. Everyone is welcome to come along and to share news of other creative opportunities.
We are looking forward to more of the same on 11th. See you there!

As a special addition to this social, Studio 3 Arts will be running one of their 'Godiva Creates Motion' workshops in the Red Room to create artwork to welcome Godiva to Waltham Forest.  Find out more.
