The Art Walk returns to Portobello this year from 30 August to 9 September with an events centred curated programme of live music, live art, participatory performance, writing, walks, installation and film screenings.
Art Walk Projects produces and curates projects working with local communities and public spaces. We nurture emergent artists working within contemporary practice and commission perceptive and imaginative works that draw upon the local environment, local history, and local communities, presented within a contemporary context. Audiences are encouraged to engage with the artists works through a process of learning, informing and participation.
The Art Walk Porty project is an artist-led project run by volunteers, that brings together local audiences and artists celebrating the public space and creative community of Portobello, Edinburgh's Seaside, culminating in an annual festival based around a walk. Our 2017 event works with 80 artists over 52 locations. It started as a pilot project in 2015.
