Catford like many other towns, has artists amongst its citizens and some of them have got together to create a space to shout about it!
Catford Arts has been set up to recognise, celebrate and provide a platform for the artistic talent in and around Catford. To kick this off they have launched a website featuring some local talent and are planning a free event called Catford Arts Trail.
The idea for the event is that 20+ Local artists and makers will show a wide variety of work and skills free to visitors in homes, studios and public spaces in the Catford area over one or possibly two consecutive weekends this year.
There is a Spacehive page to raise funds to create a media profile to launch this new event and for, leaflets and publicity materials and developing a presence locally.
The organisers are looking for local artists and makers to open their homes or studios and display their work for sale or commission. They also need people who can offer a space to host an artist/maker who does not have a suitable space of their own. This could be in a home or other Catford based space e.g. workshop, café, office. Venues will need to be open for all 4 days of the Trail.
If you are interested either as an artist or host you can contact them directly via the website.
This sounds really exciting and I’m looking forward to seeing the launch of this Catford Arts Trail event.
