Register with us just once to create your login to access the members sections of this website.

Registration includes one main exhibition or event listing. If you are organisting multiple events and exhibitions, you can pay for any additional listings you need from the 'My Orders' section once you are logged into the website. Don't worry - once we have you registered, we can work out what else you might need up until 1 April.

Artists, Event Organisers & Venues:

Register below to take part. 

Festival Friends:

Support the festival with a £25 donation.

Choose from either a name credit or a spot on the map with a simple listing to share your creative passion by displaying artworks visible 24/7 out on the art trail. Perhaps fill your windows, gardens or entire street with art.

Venue Partner Registration: 

Support the festival and feature your business on the E17 Art Trail map with a sponsored venue listing. This is not essential - exhibtitors can register and list exhibitions and events in your venues themselves, but you may wish to highlight your business as a key festival destination. You can share more about your offer as well as the artworks, perhaps include special discount for visitors.  Plus we'd really appreciate your support to make the festival a huge success.

New this year:

For those organising lots of activities, and to make it more affordable, we have created simplified mini listings to highlight any related events. Once registered you can list additional events that you wish to highlight in that venue for £25 each (this could be individual artist profiles within a group show or open studios, or things related to the main listing such as a special opening or workshop). You will be able to purchase these once you register and have a login to the members area of this website - See 'My Orders' section. We will share more information once you are registered.

Please ensure all your event and venue details are finalised and listed correctly for inclusion in the festival programme by 1 April 2024. The listings form with be emailed to you early in March.

Further details are available in the E17 Art Trail Handbooks.

Thanks so much. We are really excited to hear what you are planning to do!

What's New?

Bloomberg Connects

Artillery is excited to announce that it has partnered with Bloomberg Connects. We will benefit from their ‘in kind’ sponsorship by utilising their free app for mobile phones. This will replace the traditional paper format of our printed E17 Art Trail Guide and work in conjunction with a foldable (paper) map.

The Bloomberg Connects App has been devised for arts organisations to share their programmes and art collections.  The E17 Art Trail 2024 App will sit within the Bloomberg Connects App where it is listed amongst good company including MoMa, Guggenhiem Museum, Horniman Museum, Camden Arts Centre and London Design Museum!


It will either work as a stand-alone festival programme with interactive map or it can be used in conjunction with our new fold out ‘hard copy’ E17 Art Trail 2024 map.  This will be distributed all over Waltham Forest and beyond.

The listings in the app will be comprehensive and mirror the ‘real-life’ experience of using our traditional hard copy Trail Guide used in previous years. In addition, video and audio content can be included.

The Bloomberg Connect App is FREE to download and is available to download on Google Play and Apple’s App Store.

Festival Publicity
As well as the E17 Art Trail App, Artillery is providing the fold-out E17 Art Trail map free of charge.


To keep overall costs low, festival publicity materials such as printed posters, banners and vinyl window stickers will need to be purchased and pre-ordered.

These, together with the Art Trail Map will be available to collect during May 2024.

Free digital versions of all the publicity materials and the E17 Art Trail logo will be made available for you to use for your individual exhibitions and events on the resources page.
