Place-centred collaborative new art working with artists and communities at Edinburgh’s coast and beyond

Submissions are now being accepted for our Art in Shops strand of the 2024 Art Walk Porty Festival (7-15 September) centring on subjects of food production, farming processes and marine health.

If you’d like the opportunity to showcase your work in a local Portobello shop or cafe during the festival please get in touch.
