The September Artwalk marked the end of Index Festival, and 21 venues participated making it our biggest Artwalk event in 13 years.
A special Artwalk to celebrate the end of our summer programme, venues new and old opened their doors to the public to experience free culture. Venues such as The Ridings Shopping Centre, Wakefield Cathedral and The Art House hosted some of the Index Festival commissions, whilst others hosted their own mix of events.
Families were able to try their hand at screen printing at The Art House and plaster carving with Salma Patel at Create Cafe, explore a new Virtual Sculpture Garden at Wakefield Cathedral, and enjoy visual art exhibitions in venues across the city centre.
You can see the full list of events by downloading the map.
