Building on the success of the recent Swindon Paint Fest last October, inSwindon BID have introduced an exciting Arts & Culture Trail for the new year in the Town Centre, launched on Thursday 12th January and carrying on throughout 2023.
The focus of the trail will include creative murals, statues and sculptures, light and mosaic installations dotted around the Town Centre. Expect an eclectic mix of stunning, largescale artwork, unique and thought provoking.
Having proactively funded local artists to create twelve murals in recent years, in close partnership with the Swindon community charity Artsite & The Post Modern, inSwindon BID aims to continue to make art and culture free and accessible to all.
Anita Bellinger, inSwindon BID’s Executive Director says, “The trail is for all to enjoy and the experience is an opportunity to be outdoors and explore the town whilst getting some exercise, stopping for refreshments and a little retail therapy along the way.”
There are printed and downloadable versions of the map for the art trail experience in the Town Centre. The physical maps will be available to pick-up from the following outlets:
- Artsite & The Post Modern, Theatre Square
- Swindon Central Library, Regent Circus
- The Community Hub, The Parade
- Waterstones, Canal Walk
- Sewcraft, Havelock Street
- Love Brownies, Faringdon Road
You can also find the map on the website www.swindontowncentre.co.uk.
