FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Can you tell me a bit more about Arts Collective?


Arts Collective is a showcase and sale for artists. Essentially it's an art market. With a heavier focus on prints and original artwork rather than artisan crafts and handmade products. Artists are invited to present their work and current projects or works in progress, while interacting with other artists and potential clients and customers, in a non-stuffy and laid back creative environment. The market will be held indoors, but in the case of good weather we may have some tables outside. There is lighting and heating. We will also have a range of musicians and singers running in an open mic as part of the event. There is wifi but no access to plug sockets. Chairs will be provided where possible.
