Art uplifts the spirits and we want to create an enjoyable COVID-safe event running July-October 2021. Our aim is to support Haringey artists by commissioning site specific works and curating a group show at Alexandra Palace. Artists have been hard hit by the pandemic, and over the past year many exhibitions and events have been cancelled and the opportunities to show work have been few. Help us create spaces for artists to show their work and make a vibrant art trail that the whole community can enjoy with some permanent art additions too. Working with Alexandra Palace's Young People's Programming Team (YPPT) we will provide career development and mentoring opportunities throughout the project. As well as an YPPT exhibition of photographic work. We will make an Art Trail Map available through the Alexandra Palace website to guide you around the works and link back to the artists involved. Please take a look at last years trail here: https://www.artistswalk.org/alexandra-palace

What we'll deliver:

  • A group show of work by Harginey Artists
  • Sculpture installations by Julia Clarke
  • Artworks by Chewing Gum artist Ben Wilson
  • Outdoor photographic show by the YPPT
  • Map of the Artists Walk Art Trail
  • A web page detailing the artists and the work

Why it's a great idea:

The project will: - Bring art to the community, accessible for all to explore and enjoy. - Encourage a healthy lifestyle through it's outdoor walking trail. - Financially support the professional practice of Haringey artists. - Provide a space for Haringey artists to have their work seen. - Provide educational development opportunities for young creatives. - Highlight existing permanent artworks at Alexandra Palace. The artist Ben Wilson is a locally loved figure and his works engage people of all ages. Children especially love to find his little paintings hidden in unexpected places. https://parkland-walk.org.uk/chewing-gum-trail Julia Clarke is a local sculptor and uses organic materials to make her beautiful works. She will work within the landscape available, using the trees and wood that grows in Alexandra Palace to create unique installations. We will work to mentor young creatives and there is potential for school engagement, with planned school visits and tours.

Steps to get it done:

  • Commission art work from Ben Wilson
  • Commission art work from Julie Clarke
  • Print photography exhibition
  • Hang photography exhibition
  • Install artwork from Julie Clarke
  • Create Art Trail Map
  • Create webpage for the trail including all Artists
  • Send out Press Release to local newspapers and newsletters
  • Prepare inside space for exhibition
  • Contact artists for group show
  • Install group show
  • YPPT to interview artists for Instagram
  • YPPT to write blog pieces about Art Trail for Alexandra Palace website
  • YPPT to help curate the group show
  • Postcards promoting individual artists to be ordered and displayed
  • Map of trail to be printed and displayed with a QR code linking to the online map

We want to include as many Haringey Artists as possible, so in addition to the commissioned work, we will run a group show and look for as many exhibiting opportunities as possible. Any additional funds raised over our target will go towards commissioning more Haringey artists. Artists are an important part of our community, let's show them we care and support them in these hard times. About Artists Walk. Artists Walk was born in the first lockdown in 2020 out of the frustrations at having exhibitions and events cancelled due to covid. Artist Rosha Nutt and Art Marketeer Holly Collier invited artists to display their work in the windows of their own homes, we then added them to an interactive Google Map on our website alongside their details and links to their websites. To date we've had 24,000 views on the map, artists have sold numerous works as a result and our event was reported in local, national and international press, including articles in the Guardian, Sky Arte and Telerama.
