The Waltham Forest Arts Club was set up in 2003 to provide an arts network and meeting point for creative practitioners across the borough. Members include painters, writers, filmmakers, photographers, musicians and craftspeople and monthly meetings are held in the Red Room at Ye Olde Rose and Crown in Hoe Street, Walthamstow.
The meetings address topics relevant to arts practice and development in the borough and provide an opportunity for artists to present and discuss new projects. Meetings also host lectures, discussions and short film screenings by both club members and invited guest speakers and there are regular open sessions at which artists are free to show and talk about their work.
The website (http://www.artsclub.org.uk) launched in 2006, serves as a notice board and networking resource as well as a web presence for artists. Members are encouraged to generate content so that the site can be regularly updated with news, exhibition and commission opportunities and requests for partners on collaborative projects. There are also links to other creative events and organisations in the borough. For more information or to submit news please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
