Kirkstall Art Trail 2017: Get involved!

Kirkstall Art Trail is an annual celebration of art in the community, featuring local artists and creative organisations, writes Amy Thompson.

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, it is looking for artists, makers and creative organisations based in Kirkstall and the surrounding areas to take part in the weekend-long celebration of creativity.

The Art Trail is a free event which inspires local engagement with the arts and celebrates the creative talent in Kirkstall.

In 2016 we had over 1,000 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 art galleries and workshops. 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 to exhibit their work
• Makers to sell their work
• Creative organisations to showcase their talent

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 an art gallery setting and work cannot simply be hung on walls.

To make a submission, you can register via CuratorSpace.
