An enormous thank you to all the artists, participants, festival partners and audience who support and enable our talented community. An incredible 7,000 people are making work and performing in the E17 Art Trail. An astounding 2,500 people are volunteering their time to organise and host all 300 invitations in this year’s programme. We could never have imagined this level of participation when we began 12 years ago. We wish you every success in your individual and collective creative ambitions for 2017.
Waltham Forest Council
“Walthamstow Art Trail is one of the best things about our fantastic borough. Waltham Forest is therefore delighted to support the Art Trail and all the volunteers, artists and businesses who make it a stunning success. I would like to highlight the ingenuity, inspiration and sheer hard graft that Laura and Morag (who lead Artillery) bring to each Trail. They will be embarrassed by reading this, but I know you will surely agree that they deserve this recognition. In tough financial times, helping projects survive is tough enough, let alone enabling them to grow and thrive, which is exactly what they have done.
So, here’s to Artillery, here’s to Walthamstow and here’s to the spectacular, life-affirming, challenging, exciting Art Trail. I hope you, your family and friends will enjoy it as much as I know I will.”
