Plymouth Art Weekender is coordinated by Visual Arts Plymouth and funded through the city wide Horizon project.

Horizon is a collaborative two year programme of visual contemporary arts with an aim to provide a major ‘step-change’ in Plymouth’s visual arts ecology. Horizon will be delivered by a partnership between Plymouth Culture, Plymouth University, Plymouth City Council, Plymouth College of Art, Plymouth Arts Centre, KARST and Visual Arts Plymouth. It is funded through Arts Council England’s Ambition for Excellence fun. Starting in November 2016, the Horizon programme will develop four major arts events in the city, support a talent development programme for artists and visual arts producers, and will enable communities to commission visual artworks.
