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 15 days. You will be represented in our beautifully produced directory (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 2021 will take place from 12th - 27st June 2021.

If you are an artist or maker interested in participating in 2021 then the entry deadline is January 31st. 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 the monthly newsletter and up to date information regarding workshops, exhibitions and events.

Tarrifs

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 - £25.

Individual Entry in the Directory and on the website - £85 (with a photo of your work, descriptive section underneath, venue details and opening times).

Group entry in the Directory - Co-ordinator for the group (and point of contact for admin purposes) £55, each additional member £40 (only one photograph will appear in the Directory but the other participants will have full representation on the website).

You must pay the full inclusion fee before the application deadline of 31 January or risk your entry becoming null and void. All cheques should be made payable to ‘The Visual Images Group’ and must include the artist’s name on the reverse side, although we prefer online payment by credit or debit card, Paypal, or by bank transfer.

 

In order to take part you will need to have a venue – your own studio or sharing with others. 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!

If you have any questions do contact the Bucks Art Weeks Co-ordinator, via email at admin@bucksartweeks.org.uk or call 07950 732117.
