Bringing people together across Cumbria in a celebration of creativity, connection and place.


Putting Culture & Creativity on the Map!

Join in: add your track – and submit artwork for exhibiting – by August 16th.

Artful Ways is all about showcasing a vibrant, active and diverse creative culture in Cumbria and bringing people together.

It’s a simple idea. The project invites people around Cumbria to take part and put creativity & culture on the map. Together we will be creating a new map of Cumbria showing walking routes that feature artistic and cultural places, and connections between the wonderful creative people around the county. There will also be an exhibition of artworks with reflections on creativity, culture and place coming from people who’ve taken part. The exhibition launches this autumn at Tullie House and tours Cumbria in 2022.

Join in with your Artful Way

Meet outside, walk between studios, venues and other cultural landmarks, and add your tracks to the new map of Cultural Cumbria.

Share your creativity

When you take part, share your creative work – it will go in the online gallery and will be considered for inclusion in the touring exhibition.

Join in, meet friends old and new

and put creativity on the map
