Take Part in Scarborough Art

­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­HOW TO TAKE PART

Scarborough Art trail is an open-access marketplace for you to present, display and sell your work. It can just be for display or as an invitation to discover other work, or perhaps an introduction to other activities that you may be doing year-round, such as classes or workshops. This is your tool to help you in your artistic ventures and everyone is welcome to register to take part, whether you are a professional artist, student, or an enthusiastic amateur. Registration is £5 for YO11, YO12, YO13 or YO14 residents, and £10 for everyone else. Register here now!

Scarborough Art is also an opportunity for venues and businesses to host, programme or curate exhibitions or events that are tailored to what they want and of a style that they particularly like or suits their venue. Registrations are free for venues, who can sign up here.
