About Us

Artillery is an ambitious local arts organisation based in Walthamstow, North East London, established by the creative team behind the E17 Art Trail. Artillery aims to create lasting shared memories among neighbours. We achieve this by extending open invitations to collaborate in creating bold neighbourhood events and projects. We apply artistic practise to mobilise the talents and enthusiasm of artists, residents, businesses and communities to collectively contribute to our creative programmes.

“Our projects are about creating together, sharing skills and ideas, and making friends along the way. Each activity is part of our ongoing commitment to the longer term legacy of creative projects and the value they bring to the places we live, work and visit.”
Laura Kerry and Morag McGuire, Co-directors of Artillery

Artistic and creative practise is our tool for making connections locally and strengthening communities. Our track record means that Artillery have been commissioned to bring their successful models of working creatively in communities to neighbourhoods outside of their home borough of Waltham Forest.

We welcome approaches from anyone planning their own creative community projects – as consultants, partners or for project commissions.

 

London Borough of Culture 2019 – Waltham Forest

Since 2003 Artillery has been creating, curating and commissioning projects and festivals that celebrate and engage with the Waltham Forest’s diverse and dynamic artistic and creative community. It was this track record which led to Artillery playing a key role in the development of the winning bid to become the first London Borough of Culture in 2019. Their latest project Grandad’s Island: from Page to Pavement was named as a “hero” project in the winning bid to become London Borough of Culture. Commissioned by Waltham Forest, the project is inspired by local author and illustrator Benji Davies’ award winning picture book Grandad’s Island.

This project was launched at The Walthamstow Garden Party in the summer when Artillery created Grandad’s Island on site in Lloyd Park. Within the area curated by Artillery they welcomed more than 6,000 visitors over the weekend as audiences and participants in creative activities to launch this project. This was the sixth year of Artillery collaborating with the Barbican who are the producers of The Walthamstow Garden Party.
