Opportunity: Wirksworth Festival Art & Architecture Trail
Deadline: 12th May 2017
Entry Fee: £75 standard fee, £30 for artists using their own home, £30 for students in their first two years of practice.
Details: Wirksworth Festival is a major cultural event in the East Midlands, promoting the work of artists and designer makers to a national audience. This year it is taking place from 8th – 24th September.
Every September our celebrated Art & Architecture Trail Weekend sees the town of Wirksworth come alive with street theatre, music, film, contemporary visual art and craft.
Over 4,000 people visit the town to enjoy the Art & Architecture Trail, where over 150 artists and designer makers exhibit in more than 70 venues.
In previous years, overall artists have taken at least £40,000 in sales and more work was commissioned. 95% of artists thought the Festival was either “excellent” or “good”; 86% said their visitor numbers were either “excellent” or “good” and 74% are likely to apply to exhibit again.
