The hugely popular E17 Art Trail is back next year (3 - 18 June 2017)! The theme will be STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics) and to help spark ideas, Artillery are running a series of six monthly talks this autumn. The talks will help generate and develop ideas based on STEAM topics in time for when registration for the E17 Art Trail opens in early 2017. We are delighted to be hosting the first of the series at the William Morris Gallery. 

This special event ties in with Cultivate, Waltham Forest’s Urban Food Growing Festival. Speakers include Rosalind Fowler and Tasha Marks. Rosalind was Artist in Residence at the William Morris Gallery 2015-16, her work explores the connections between William Morris’s “ecotopian” ideals and Waltham Forest’s expanding network of urban food-growing sites. Tasha Marks is an award-winning food historian and artist, who explores the relationship between food, art and history. Her practice, AVM Curiosities, champions the use of food as an artistic medium, with projects ranging from museum-style exhibitions and sculptural installations, to interactive lectures and limited-edition confectionery.

The event is free but tickets must be booked in advance.
