Each year of the E17 Art Trail we are overwhelmed by the creativity and energy of the artists, makers, and residents who live here. It seems fitting that we will all be enjoying the 15 years of the E17 Art Trail in the same year that Waltham Forest is London's first Borough of Culture.

Ours is a proud, diverse and welcoming community. Year on year the E17 Art Trail grows and embraces its residents and visitors. The festival belongs to the people here who create, exhibit and sell their work and who invite you to roam around this year's E17 Art Trail to explore how they have risen to the challenge of our theme Wonder {of Art & Science}.

205 venues, from studios to schools, walls to windows, cafes to community centres, faith spaces to front rooms provide the spaces for you to marvel at the creativity on display, get involved and start conversations. Many of our creative community have been participating in the E17 Art Trail since we began. It has been the catalyst for emerging artists to develop a professional practice and it has been a privilege to have been part of them following their passion. We also take pride in how the opportunity to share work, get involved in activities and start conversations has ignited creativity or simply thrilled us to the joy that art can bring to the everyday.

Event organisers have reported that 8,500 residents are exhibiting or performing as part of the festival from 1 - 16 June. Don't miss it.
