Leytonstone Arts Trail is an opportunity for anyone to show their work. It builds connections between local artists, businesses and residents.
Participants display their work in a variety of venues such as cafes, shops, businesses, community halls, their homes or outdoors. They register their exhibitions and venues with the Leytonstone Arts Trail organising group who help to publicise the exhibits through various media.
Started by a small group of artists in 2008; the Leytonstone Arts Trail is almost entirely self-funded and run by volunteers. The egalitarian entry criteria attracts a diverse range of artists from hobbyists to professionals, with ages from primary school to pensioners.
Each year evolves its own personality and surprises owing to the particular mix of participating artists and hosting organisations.
Members of the public are invited to enjoy all the exhibitions free of charge and it is hoped that the Arts Trail increases the enjoyment of all who live in, work in and visit the area.
