This year the Newbridge Arts Trail will be on 12 & 13 May 2018
Welcome to the arts trail! The planning, publicity, web and artwork are carried out by a committee of volunteer artists and makers. If you would like to volunteer or can offer your expertise, please get in touch! Mark Thomas is the chair and you can reach him here: email@example.com
The success of the Newbridge Arts Trail depends on the participation of you, the artist. This is a community event and your help is needed, appreciated and very, very welcome.
There are several open meetings which all participants are asked to attend, to share your ideas and trail experience, meet the other artists and collect flyers and brochures.
You are expected to open for both days and all the hours. At group venues artists and makers should be present to talk about their work. This is only fair as visitors may have come especially to meet with you.
We produce a gorgeous guide and map to the trail and everyone is expected to help distribute this locally.
