– Ryde Arts Trail!

The Ryde Arts Trail, a collaborative effort between Ryde Town Council and Community Murals, is set to launch Easter Weekend – Saturday 30 March, promising an immersive and inspiring experience for all. On the launch day, artists will be present throughout the town, offering maps and insights into their creations.

The Arts Trail invites you to discover nine captivating artworks strategically placed throughout the town, forming a charming walking trail. As participants set off along the trail, they’ll encounter QR codes accompanying each artwork, offering detailed insights into the artists and the inspiration behind their masterpieces. This addition aims to enhance the trail experience, providing a deeper understanding of the creative process and the stories woven into each piece.

The trail commences at Monkton Arts, guiding participants on a scenic 2-mile route through the heart of Ryde, culminating at the seafront. However, participants have the flexibility to explore the artworks in any sequence, tailoring the trail to their preferences.

Community Murals, Emma and Hollie said:  “It has been great to collaborate with the Town Council and various artists to create such beautiful and detailed murals across the town. Saturday 30th is a fantastic opportunity to meet the artists behind the murals and delve deeper into the trail.”

To facilitate easy access to the trail map, stickers featuring QR codes will be in the windows of several Ryde businesses, linking directly to the Town Council website. Additionally, physical maps will be available for pickup at select locations including Waterside Pool, The Star, and Grace’s Bakery. Along with the integration of What Three Words ensuring precise locations for each installation.

Alison Pearce, Community Development Worker said: “This project was funded by the Police and Crime Commissioner and underscores the commitment to bring our community together through the power of creativity. Through collaborative efforts and inclusive projects like the Ryde Arts Trail, we aim to strengthen the vibrancy of our town.”
