Wandsworth Art is a new online platform that showcases extraordinary artists, designers, creative projects, groups and organisations based in or from the borough of Wandsworth.
Wandsworth Art is a chance to connect with your local creative scene and discover the vibrant talent you didn't know was on your doorstep.
Wandsworth Art 2020
While Wandsworth Artists’ Open House couldn’t go ahead in October 2020 due to the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, Wandsworth Art was launched to stay true to its aims: to nurture and support artists, bolster creative networks and introduce local art lovers to their creative neighbours and the amazing cultural organisations that call Wandsworth home.
Between 3 – 11 October 2020 invited local partners and artists curated presentations of their favourite artists from the artist profiles, and also offer local young creatives advice on careers and routes into the creative industries.
We partnered with the Royal College of Art (RCA) to launch Wandsworth Art Season with a ‘takeover’ day filled with ways to explore your own creativity and think about how your work exists digitally / online.
While Bounce Theatre closed the Season with a ‘takeover’ day that featured inspirational creative workshops with tasks to do at home, and helped us celebrate Black History Month.
Calling all Creatives!
Since launching this website Autumn 2020 profiles of local creatives, arts groups, projects and organisations, exclusive interviews with innovative artists, features on our favourite places for a local culture trip and celebrations of our artistic heritage have been uploaded to this website.
Alongside the digital offer, Wandsworth Art has also started appearing across the borough on various shop windows as part of the Framed project.
If you are an extraordinary artist, designer, project, group or organisations, let us know and upload your profile here. For more information on how to set yourself up on Wandsworth Art and more, check out our Journal.
