      PLEASE NOTE: It may be possible to accept late applications - but an additional fee of £5 will be due from those artists.
    • 1) PLEASE ENSURE that the information provided is accurate and as requested - co-ordination of this initiative is an entirely voluntary exercise, so that we are seeking to be as efficient as possible in collating the information.
      2) ‘OPEN STUDIOS NOTTS’ is simply an umbrella ‘brand’ set up by a steering committee made up of volunteers to provide publicity for events run by artists and makers in the county – those EVENTS & ANY LIABILITY REMAIN ENTIRELY THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE ARTISTS/MAKERS running them.
      3) ARTISTS/MAKERS MUST OPEN AT DATES AND TIMES STATED by them on this form, for those events to succeed. Failure to do so will preclude artists from taking part in future events under the Open Studios Notts banner.
      4) CENTRAL PUBLICITY through web and print media can only provide a broad promotion of the events taking place. For individual events/artists, success in getting visitors depends as much on the actions you take to attract those visitors - and it is strongly suggested that you consider how you might further achieve this through your own advertising, leafleting, personal invitations, etc.
      5) IMPORTANT - By dating and returning the completed form you confirm that you will open your studio at the dates and times you have stated above, that you are happy for the information provided to be used in publicity material for Open Studios Notts 2018, that you agree to sharing your contact details with other participants of Open Studios Notts and that you agree to all the conditions stated here.
    • When you submit this form, you should receive an email confirmation with a copy of your completed form.
