Supporting independent creatives
Since launching in 2008, Artwalk has offered Wakefield’s creative community opportunities to exhibit their work, meet, and sell to a growing number of visitors.
A bi-monthly evening of art, performance, music, heritage and socialising, the events are hosted across a variety of independent venues in Wakefield City Centre (when allowed by government guidelines) and via our website and social media platforms online. Artwalk offers a range of free events for all to enjoy, but it also gives our creative community a vital opportunity to share their work, meet fellow artists and connect with audiences.
Like many other cultural festivals, events and venues, throughout 2021 Artwalk Wakefield had to adapt our programme to 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. Something we look forward to doing even more in 2021!
Sending lots of love, the Artwalk team xx
