How do I get involved?

 

Would you like to take part in Bucks Art Weeks and be part of the largest visual arts event in the county?  

BAW is open to anyone who creates their own work. Over 500 artists and makers take part every year, in over 200 venues, all over Buckinghamshire County. To take part you will need to have a venue and be able to open for at least 5 days during the Art Weeks potential period of 16 days. You will be represented in our beautifully produced 'Special Edition' brochure (print run averaging 25,000) which is liberally distributed across the county through libraries, information centres, participating venues and many other outlets. Art Weeks provides you with a unique selling experience, the opportunity to talk to the public about your work and be introduced to thousands of visitors who love the chance to meet artists and makers and see how it's done. 

Bucks Art Weeks 2022 will take place from 11th - 26th June 2022. (Dates 'Subject to Change' due to Coronavirus).

If you are an artist or maker interested in participating in 2022, the entry deadline is the 31st of January 2022. Your first step is to become a member of the Visual Images Group, organisers of Bucks Art Weeks - complete an online membership. Membership provides you with your own online gallery on the Bucks Art Weeks website, a monthly newsletter and up to date information regarding workshops, exhibitions and events.

Tariffs

If you wish to participate in the event, there are various tarrifs depending on how you wish to take part - as an individual entry or as part of a group.

Membership - £30.

Family Membership - £35.

Group entry in the 'Special Edition' brochure - Group Entry Administration fee of £55, then per artist £40 (only one square photograph or 2 small square photographs will appear in the 'Special Edition' brochure but the other participants will have full representation on the website).

You must pay the full inclusion fee before the application deadline of the 31st of January 2022 or risk your entry becoming null and void. 

In order to take part you will need to have a venue – your own studio or sharing with others. As the 'Special Edition' brochure will not contain venue and opening times details, we will be asking for you to enter your venue details and opening times between the 1st April - 16th May on the website.  Many artists and makers choose to open their own studio, but you can also do Art Weeks in a shared venue with other artists and makers. If you have a venue that has space for another artist or maker, please get in touch and let us know.  Or if your own studio isn’t suitable to open to the public and you’d rather take part with others in another venue, then contact us. We endeavour to match artists to venues when needed, so do let us know. We're here to help!
