Supporting independent creatives
Artwalk, now in its twelfth year, offers Wakefield’s creative community opportunities to exhibit their work, meet, and sell to a growing number of visitors. The November Artwalk will see this vital opportunity to sell return with the Virtual Marketplace. Helping to support our creative community during this difficult year, and solving all your festive buying woes in the process!
Amongst our carefully selected, predominantly local, stallholders you’ll find stunning unique items to treat yourself to, or to gift to your loved ones this festive season, even while the shops are shut! From original works of art to handmade jewellery, festive baubles to t-shirts, there’s something for everyone.
More about Artwalk Wakefield:
For those not in the know, pre-covid, Artwalk Wakefield was a bi-monthly evening of art, performance, music, heritage and socialising, spread across a variety of independent venues in Wakefield City Centre. Artwalk offers a range of free events for all to enjoy, but it also gives our creative community an opportunity to make sales, and our audience a chance to purchase work from local makers.
Like many other cultural festivals, events and venues, this year Artwalk Wakefield has had to adapt the programme to being a virtual one. But that hasn’t stopped us shining a spotlight on local artists, celebrating inspirational projects and giving our communities access to art and culture for free.
Sending lots of love, the Artwalk team xx
