We Believe

City Arts trail created by local artists

Below you will find information about each of the 20 fabulous local artists who have produced artwork for our ‘We Believe’ arts trail. Each artist was micro-commissioned to produce a poster, guided by the theme ‘We Believe – expressions of hope & optimism for our city beyond covid-19.’ The trail was artist-led and we asked our artists to produce a piece representing what the theme meant to them.

A range of media methods were used to create the original pieces, from watercolour and digital art to braille and copper etching; the trail is a true celebration of the diverse talent and creativity that lies within our city.

Supporting local creatives and providing collaborative opportunities lies at the heart of what we do and we are so pleased to have been able to offer this opportunity to some of them. Huge thanks to the kind support of Portsmouth City Council and numerous generous pledges from local businesses and individuals who have enabled this to happen.

There are 3 walkable trails which are plotted on the 3 maps below, along with information about which artist you can find at each site, so get your comfy shoes on and feast your eyes upon our artists’ creations.
