The event builds on Portobello's diverse creative community and its unique coastline with site specific art, artist open studios, popup art in local shops and venues,and a maker's market, arranged around a local walk of Portobello. We showcase quality contemporary art, supporting emergent artists as well as having an invited artists programme, and working with local shops and venues, and other public sites. The event engages the local community and wider audiences to a rich and diverse programme.

The Art Walk was set up in 2015 by local artist + designer, Rosy Naylor.
