Home is Where the Art Is 

Prestwich's community art trail is back!

14 to 22 November 2020

Although Prestwich Arts Festival is postponed for this year, we couldn't let 2020 pass by without the chance to showcase the amazing talent and creativity of our community. So we're bringing back ‘Home Is Where the Art Is’: our community art trail that gives everyone and anyone an opportunity to get creative and take part. 

We welcome all art forms and artistic abilities – let your home or business be your gallery or stage. Simply create a piece of art and display it in your window, your garden, your front yard. All we ask is that art displays are family and community friendly and that artwork is visible from the street.

This year’s theme is ‘Destination’: this can be interpreted in any way you wish. It may be a place you’ve enjoyed during lockdown, a place you’ve missed, perhaps a future destination you'd like to visit or somewhere special to you. We don’t want to stifle any creative ideas and you're welcome to go off brief if you have something else in mind.

We also encourage you to brighten up the dark nights by illuminating your display during the evening where possible. 

How to take part
  • Email art.prestwichartsfestival@gmail.com with your name and address of where your artwork will be displayed

  • Tell your family, friends and neighbours and encourage them to get involved too

  • We are also aiming to make the trail even more accessible by having artwork displayed on online and ask that you share an image of your artwork for the website by 6 November

  • Follow the trail and immerse yourself in the creativity of our community. 

Radius: anyone with an M25 Prestwich postcode.
Deadline to register: 6 November 2020

When you register to take part your location will be plotted on to a map that will be shared on www.prestwichartsfestival.co.uk and associated social media channels the week prior to the festival.  

If you have any questions please contact art.prestwichartsfestival@gmail.com.

Follow the trail

If getting creative is not your thing you may prefer to follow the trail and admire the works of our great community. We are also aiming to make the trail even more accessible by having artwork displayed online. Check back soon for more details.


Home is Where the Art Is wouldn't be possible without the generous support of our friends at Cuckoo:

"We're really happy to add our support PAF this year, to keep building on the success of previous years and recognise how much the local community has come together throughout 2020"


Find out about volunteering opportunities by dropping us a line at prestwichartsfestival@gmail.com.
