Kirkstall Art Trail 2017
Deadline: 31/03/2017 | City: Leeds | Region: West Yorkshire | Country: United Kingdom | Kirkstall Art Trail
Kirkstall Art Trail is an annual celebration of art in the community, featuring local artists and creative organisations. For two days, venues throughout Kirkstall will host a variety of exhibitions, free workshops and activities suitable for all ages and abilities.
Kirkstall Art Trail began in 2015. Now in its third year, the Art Trail is looking for artists, makers and creative organisations based in West Leeds and the surrounding areas to take part in the weekend-long celebration of creativity. By West Leeds and the surrounding areas, we mean: Kirkstall, Horsforth, Headingley, Burley, Hyde Park, Armley, Bramley, Calverley, Farnley, Farsley, Pudsey, Rodley and Wortley.
The trail is a free event which aims to inspire local engagement with the arts and celebrates the creative talent in and around Kirkstall. In 2016 we had over 1000 visitors over the weekend, taking part in workshops, talking to artists and exploring Kirkstall on a gnome hunt!
Each year a variety of venues across Kirkstall open their doors as exhibition spaces and workshop venues. Last year’s venues included a barge on the Leeds Liverpool Canal, Kirkstall Abbey, a unit at Kirkstall Bridge Shopping Park and the local cricket club.
For the 2017 event, we are looking for:
- Artists and makers to exhibit and sell their work
- Creative organisations to showcase their talent
- Volunteers to help over the weekend
The Art Trail offers a unique opportunity to exhibit and sell your work in an unusual venue and we would like applicants to think outside the box when it comes to displaying their work. Our venues are very different to a gallery setting and work cannot simply be hung on walls. We ask that our artists engage with the public as much as they can and we encourage artists to give demonstrations or lead workshops/activities relating to their practice.
