Hello and Welcome
We are delighted to announce that the E17 Art Trail 2024 is taking place from 1 - 16 June.
The E17 Art Trail is an artist-led, community-powered arts festival that gives the opportunity for artists and makers of all ages and abilities to exhibit and promote their work, connect with other creatives and be part of their local neighbourhood.
We are currently inviting participation in the festival. Here you can find all the information on how to take part, plus details of events and workshops to help you prepare.
Check back here in early May for the Festival Programme

RESOURCES & SUPPORT FOR EXHIBITORS
With no selection process, the E17 Art Trail welcomes all types of creative work. Artwork can be exhibited or performed in a variety of venues, such as galleries, homes, studios, businesses and community spaces located within the E17 postcode. It can also be hosted online. You don’t have to be a resident of Walthamstow to take part but you will need to make some links to the area to organise your events.
There are plenty of resources at hand.
See below to dowload the festival handbooks for artists, event organisers, and venue holders. Book for 'How to...' Workshops or a One to One Session and be sure to sign up for the newsletter for the latest updates.
For further inspiration, visit our YouTube channel to hear about the different ways you could be involved or from teachers, young creatives and school leaders about why taking part in the E17 Art Trail is invaluable to them and their school community.
With thanks, Tony, Morag and Laura - The Artillery Team

FESTIVAL THEME FOR 2024 : VALUE
To refresh and inspire you each art trail has a theme.
Our theme for 2024 is 'Value'. You are welcome to plan your E17 Art Trail exhibition or event with this theme in mind or follow your own creative ideas.
This year’s theme can be interpreted in a variety of ways. You might think of value in terms of how art creates value; does it give your life deep satisfaction or give great enjoyment with audiences? Does art create value by bringing your neighbourhood together or does it create talking points that are of value to society? Or you might be interested by systems of value and valuing?
To illustrate the many ways, we welcome your images and thoughts relating to this year's theme. With your permission, we may use them in our advertising and social media. Please send them either as JPeg or PNG format to firstname.lastname@example.org.
