The E17 Arts Trail is a chance for artists and designers in Waltham Forest to show their work.

While it’s run by local artists, it’s not just about the professionals and north east London’s growing number of bearded bohemians.  

It’s open to anyone to submit their art.

The Trail also aims to address the lack of artistic space—and put participation back into art and bring it to a mass audience.

Schools and adult education courses showcase students’ work on their perimeter fences and local community groups put on exhibitions.

Public buildings and residential homes open their doors to the public and art is showcased on the street. 

Walthamstow, London E17. 30 May until 14 June. For more information go to
