24 – 25 Sep & 1 – 2 Oct The Catford Arts Trail : 11am – 6pm
A free Catford Arts Trail/Open House event, to celebrate creativity in Catford, where local artists and makers will be showing their work in various homes and public spaces.
This is the first ever Arts Trail in Catford, and has been organised by five local artists.
Over two weekends this Autumn, 70 local artists and makers will be showing and selling works in their homes, studios and public venues.
There will be workshops, demonstrations, music, spoken word, pop up cafes and three sites where installations will be created by artists and visitors during the trail (including a piece being created by Channel 4’s Shed of the Year 2016 finalist – Michael Connell). There will also be a striking and amusing art installation in central Catford built for the event.
The event is supported by Lewisham Council and runs immediately after the first ever Catford Free Film Festival (16th – 24th September 2016) making Catford a new focus of creative intiatives this Autumn.
Catford Arts provides both online and physical platforms to recognize and celebrate the varied and growing creative talent in the area. The first major event will be the Catford Arts Trail.
Wendy Arnold-Dean, speaking on behalf of Catford Arts says;
“It’s always inspirational and fun to go around artists’ open studios. There’s a huge appetite for this kind of event in the area at the moment; we’re extremely excited to think of the creative diversity we will be sharing in September!”
