ART WALK PORTY 2017
is now open for applications to our 'EdgeLands', 'Beside the City' and 'Walks+Talks' site specific programmes, as well as our 'Art Houses', 'Art in Shops' and 'Maker's Market'.
Art Walk Projects produces and curates projects in response to local environments, histories, and communities. We work with artists to create public, site engaged, contemporary work centred around place.
Last year we worked with the stations old and new in Portobello and Joppa developing our 'ArtRail: Journey Lines' project.
ART WALK PORTY 2016
Catch up on last year's event to see the 75 artists participating last September over more than 40 locations around Edinburgh's Seaside.
Some images of last year's event are below.
The Art Walk Porty 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.
