ART WALK PORTY 2017
The 2017 Art Walk extends to over two weekends this year, with an emphasis on our 'Edge Lands', of those places, often abandoned or unnoticed, on the edge of a city. We focus the walk around Seafield Prom and Meadows Yard Nature Reserve. In addition there is a new 'walks+talks' series, as well as audio guides, and prom 'art carts', all alongside our regular programme of 'Art Houses', 'Art in Shops', and a 'Maker's Market' on the second weekend.
WALKS + TALKS + PARTICIPATORY ART
We are running a series of related events, walks, talks and performances during the event.

Find out about the three audio guides we have commissioned for this year's event, based around Seafield and Meadows Yard, available to download to listen to as you walk.
The Art Walk Porty event builds on Portobello's diverse creative community and its unique coastline with site specific art, art houses, 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, forging links with local shops and related organisations with a collaborative approach. The event engages the local community and wider audiences to a rich and diverse programme.
