About

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. It’s also an opportunity to have your say and influence the Wandsworth Arts and Culture Strategy currently in development.

While Wandsworth Artists' Open House can't go ahead this October due to the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, Wandsworth Art will 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.

Wandsworth Art 2020

Between 3 – 11 October 2020 invited local partners will curate presentations of their favourite artists to watch and also offer local young creatives advice on careers and routes into the creative industries.

We are excited to be partnering with the Royal College of Art (RCA) to launch Wandsworth Art Season with ‘takeover’ day on 3 October 2020, where you can explore your own creativity and think about how your work exists digitally / online.

While Bounce Theatre will be closing the Season with a ‘takeover’ day on 10 October 202 featuring inspirational creative prompts and celebrating Black History Month.

Calling all Creatives!

In the coming months you can expect to see on this website  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.

Alongside the digital offer, Wandsworth Art will also soon appear across the borough on various shop windows and lampposts 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.
