Waltham Forest Arts Club was set up in 2003 to provide a network and meeting point for creative practitioners across the borough.
Members include painters, writers, filmmakers, photographers, musicians, curators, critics and craftspeople. Meetings are held in the Red Room at Ye Olde Rose and Crown in Hoe Street, Walthamstow, dates will be announced. The meetings address topics relevant to arts practice and development in the borough and provide an opportunity to present and discuss new projects. We have decided to stop having automatic monthly meetings and instead only call a meeting when it is needed.
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 members are free to show and talk about their work.
The Arts Club organises several events/exhibitions each year and participates in the E17 Art Trail and the Leytonstone Arts Trail.
