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.
Some news about Art Walk Porty 2017. We're extending the dates to 10 days this year - 1-10 September 2017 - and Open Studios is becoming Art Houses. We're also planning to have an EdgeLands theme to this year's commissions and a Walks+Talks programme. The Maker's Market will take place from 8-10 Sept. We're hoping to be able to fully announce our plans and be open for applications during May.
Browse this website from below to see everything that happened during our Art Walk Porty 2016 event celebrating the public space and artistic activity in and around Portobello, Edinburgh's Seaside.
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.
