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 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 2016 event worked with 70 artists over 45 locations.
