Welcome to the:
Horsforth Walk of Art Website!
Horsforth Walk of Art 2022!
It’s nearly here!
We cannot wait to welcome you back to the Horsforth Walk of Art 2022!
The festival is shaped and led by the community of Horsforth so every year we have no idea who will participate or what new ideas will be brought forward. It makes for a very exciting and varied festival. This year is no exception and I think you will agree that there is something for everyone!
What is the Walk of Art?
The Horsforth Walk of Art is a free, community led, family friendly, diverse and inclusive, creative festival that engages the entire community. We aim to showcase creativity by local and almost local artists and performers in everyday and unusual spaces. It engages and inspires the community to make creativity, in all its forms, accessible and engaging.
Before Covid struck, our last ‘normal’ year was 2019 which saw over 120 artists displaying and performing numerous art forms in 83 venues split across 3 different routes around the popular Leeds suburb. High street shops, churches, woodlands, the park, garages, houses, sheds and caravans. There are no spaces we wouldn’t consider. We are hoping to get back to the buzz of 2019 as 2020 was plan c and 2021 was plan B!
When is the Walk of Art 2022 happening?
The 2022 Walk of Art takes place across the weekend of the 2nd and 3rd July from 11am to 5pm each day.
This year will see the return of many favourite artists, venues and events such as the High Street Galleries for which the volunteers were shortlisted for a Child Friendly Leeds Award 2020 for their work within all the local schools.
Each year we provide a theme so artists, residents, businesses and venues can immerse themselves in the spirit of the festival. This is completely optional but has proved very popular in the past.
The theme for 2022 is…
Many Leaves, One Tree
It means: We are all individual yet all connected. No one is alone.
Think Nature and community.
