2-4 September 2016
Programme now live.
We have an exciting series of events, art, and studios planned for the second Art Walk Porty; centred around a 3-day festival of new visual art taking place each September that celebrates the public space and artistic activity of Portobello, Edinburgh's seaside. This year we also have an ArtRail project running in conjunction with the Art Walk extending our reach into walks and journeys around Joppa, Brunstane and on the Borders Railway.
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.
