A festival created by the residents of Walthamstow and produced by Artillery

The E17 Art Trail festival makes visible and celebrates the creativity of artists and creative citizens living and working in and around Walthamstow, East London. It is produced and gently curated by Artillery.

The festival programme grows from the ideas percolating in our neighbourhoods and among artists. Collaborations and partnerships evolve between artists, with businesses, community groups, learning settings, faith places, and neighbourhoods: collectively we transform our experience of where we live, work and play through art.

The E17 Art Trail grew into an 18 day biennial festival since its inception in 2005. It was devised in 2004 by two Walthamstow artists as a way for artists to share their work locally with next-to-no conventional exhibiting opportunities. In 2024, we celebrate 20 years of the E17 Art Trail!

Artillery is an arts development organisation based in Walthamstow, North East London, established by the creative team behind the E17 Art Trail. Artillery aims to create lasting shared memories among neighbours resulting from our open invitations to create neighbourhood events and projects together.


We apply artistic practise to mobilise the talents and enthusiasm of artists, residents, businesses and communities to collectively contribute to our creative programmes. Artistic and creative practise is our tool for making connections locally and strengthening communities.
