The Westcliff Art Trail starts today.
The Westcliff Art Trail helps primarily artists from the Westcliff area, but is now open to applications from artists based elsewhere in Southend…
Westcliff Art Trail was started by Westcliff Artists in 2008 with the aim to improve the cultural profile of the area, inspired by comments from residents who wanted more visual arts to be promoted and showcased locally.
Aspiring and established artists who live or work in the SS0 or the SS1 areas exhibit their work for a week in May. They use local business premises and community areas in and around Hamlet Court Road as gallery spaces.
The work varies in media and includes oils, screen-printing, ceramics, 3D, digital and textiles. Participation in the Trail provides opportunities to raise cultural aspirations for local people, offering opportunities for creative engagement on an individual basis and also raising awareness of career pathways within the creative and cultural industries.
Next year’s Westcliff Art Trail will take place betwen 14-22 May
The deadline for application is 7 January 2009. Any Southend artists can apply but the priority will be given to those with SS0 and SS postcodes.
