Our aim is that Plymouth Art Weekender confidently celebrates Plymouth, its people and the visual arts, promoting the city as an exciting contemporary art destination. We hope that the Weekender platform also helps to develop local talent and ambition in the city, and gives an opportunity for artists & organisers to try something new by making it easier to reach a public audience in the city and beyond.
Plymouth Art Weekender is initiated and organised by Visual Arts Plymouth - a voluntary group of local artists, curators and producers dedicated to growing the city’s cultural profile and is an opportunity for the Plymouth’s community to get creative. During 2017 - 2018, Plymouth Art Weekender forms part of Horizon, a collaborative two year programme of visual contemporary arts, funded through Arts Council England’s Ambition for Excellence fund and supported by Plymouth Culture.
