To participate in the Leytonstone Arts Trail you will need to complete the following 3 steps before 9th April:
1. Find a venue
You can display your work anywhere in Leytonstone so long as you have permission from the owner or manager of the venue. Consider cafes, shops, galleries, studios, workshops, your own home or even outdoors. It’s your job to find a venue but if you have difficulty doing so, contact the Arts Trail organisers who may be able to help you. You can also take a look at our venue availability list and map:
2. Pay the entry fee
There is an entry fee for participating that is used towards the printing costs of the Trail guide. It should be paid before filling in your online form using the buttons below so you can provide a paypal reference number.
There are two forms of entry:
Individual: £25 – this gets you a small amount of text plus a thumbnail example of your work and a dot on the map. (This could also be a suitable option for venues shared between a small number of people (ie 2 or 3) who are happy for their show to be represented by a single image and description.)
Group: £60 – this gets you a space of approximately A6 size, portrait or landscape), advertising your show in the Guide. The advert should be simple and clear to read, contain the venue location with postcode, opening times, name and any other information you wish to include. You will also get a location dot on the map.
Complete the online form before 9th April 2017. To complete your registration you will need to provide details of you venue, your exhibition and an image to go in the Trail guide. Please take care to provide accurate information as the information you provide will be printed in the Trail guide.
should be 1000 pixels along the longest edge, in jpeg or png format and no bigger than 500kb. Submit your image as part of your online registration. The Deadline to be included in the guide is April 9th
… and then: prepare to install your work at your registered venue
Once you have completed the registration process and as the trail is approaching, you can begin to collaborate with your venue to ensure you have time to set your exhibition up in the space. The Trail dates this year are the 1st July – 9th July so it is important you have your place set up in time for the beginning of the trail. If it is your first time exhibiting or you feel like you need a bit of help, feel free to get in touch and let us know. Similarly if you are an old hand and wouldn’t mind helping others if they need it, please do get in touch.
If you have any questions or encounter any difficulties feel free to contact the organising team by emailing email@example.com.
