Nelson and District Arts Council Artwalk

Artwalk is a singularly Nelson activity celebrating 27 years of local and regional artist promotion. Artwalk attracts custom to local businesses along Baker Street, Vernon Street and Front Street by presenting the work of local artists in business locations as venues and galleries. In partnership with Blue Night, a new start up arts presenter in Nelson, we plan to enhance the activities in Nelson by increasing presentation and performance through collaboration. We plan to expand our promotion to other genres including musical performances, dance events, literary events and increased collaborations to support art and to support emerging administrators and presenters.
