Thanks to the talent and enthusiasm of local residents ‘Home Is Where The Art Is’ community art trail has become a  regular and well loved part of our annual festival. We're delighted that our community art trail will return for 2022 - this time in partnership with local green heroes Prestwich Environmental Forum! Create an artwork for your window, driveway, front yard or porch and help turn Prestwich into an open air art gallery.

The theme
This year's theme is all things environmental - perhaps you're inspired by our fantastic local green spaces, or ideas to help us all go plastic free, or maybe you'll use recycled materials in your creations. You can use paint, collage, pottery - anything goes! Let your imagination run free.

How to enter your artwork in 3 easy steps!

  1. Decide where you'll display your artwork - it should be viewable from the road or pavement for people following the trail.

  2. Register to be part of the trail by emailing your address to art.prestwichartsfestival@gmail.com

  3. Create your masterpiece and display it from 17th September! If you need inspiration, take a look at the gallery of images from last year at the bottom of this page. 
     

The deadline for registering your artwork is 14th September. We'll add your address to our art trail map. We can't wait to fill Prestwich with art again.

About Prestwich Environmental Forum

Prestwich Environmental Forum empowers individuals, groups and organisations in Prestwich to protect our community from Climate Change. They are a community led and run, grassroots group for positive change.

In 2021, they launched their #PlasticFreePrestwich initiative to achieve ‘plastic free’ status through Surfers Against Sewage’s scheme. They're working with local businesses and community groups to reduce the amount of single-use plastic they use. They’re celebrating the great work already taking place to make Prestwich a greener, cleaner place to live. And they’ve organised a series of educational and community events to enable local people to take action around the environment. 

 

If you’re part of a business or group in Prestwich and want to support this project, please email prestwichef@gmail.com
