Plymouth Art Weekender, an ambitious three-day event celebrating the arts across the city, will take place between Friday 23rd- Sunday 25th, September. Following a successful 2015 event the Weekender will take over the city and promote Plymouth as a contemporary art destination that promotes participation in a wide range of exhibitions and exciting activities for all ages.

Following an open call for ideas, over 80 events feature local, national, and international artists including Douglas Gordon, Myriam Lefkowitz, Jock Mooney,, Katya Sander, Low Profile and a public art commission by art collective, Reactor. Exhibitions, talks, music, film, workshops, and performance will be staged across Plymouth, taking over galleries, houses, empty spaces and connecting communities.

The Weekender prides itself on being open to all.  Plymouth Art Weekender offers an exciting, eclectic mix of contemporary art, community participation and a warm welcome.

The Weekender events can be navigated through the free Art Weekender map, available from galleries, shops and libraries across Plymouth, as well as online at

The Plymouth Art Weekender is produced by Visual Arts Plymouth, a diverse group of volunteers who represent visual arts organisations, communities and artists from across the city.
