Mobilising creativity in neighbourhoods
What artists say about us
"E17 Designers Markets alongside the Art Trail, encourage people from other areas of London to visit – as a whole we are a unique shop-window of the borough’s creative talent."
"The two weeks of the E17 Art Trail in June are wonderful - there is a buzz and an incredible celebration of the arts in Walthamstow. It also gives us a focus and an opportunity to share [artwork] with an audience - it builds collaborations and working together with our local arts community."
"[It’s] a great opportunity to develop new work and take some creative risks. Either by exhibiting in a new location or opening my studio doors, I get to engage with fascinating people and exchange ideas that will often trickle into my work."
As an established weaver with international and national exhibitions, collections and published pieces, the E17 Art Trail helped me visualise what I can do locally and be part of a community of creative thinkers again.
