Romsey Art Festival 2013 Call for Artists



Already a vibrant and well loved area of Cambridge, Romsey is set to become part of the cultural quarter of the city, highlighted this summer with the first ever Romsey Art Festival.  This will celebrate and showcase the rich way of life in the area.

The Festival will take place primarily on Saturday 3rd August, with some fringe events happening at later dates. Confirmed events include pop-up cinema, poetry workshops, mural paintings, an art market in Hope Street Yard, exhibitions and much more.

Cambridge Art Salon is now looking for more artists who would like to get involved in running an event as part of the festival. Some limited funding is available to pay artists to lead workshops, particularly with local community groups.

Other events require voluntary participation. The Art Salon team can assist with finding venues, but essentially we are looking for artists who have the initiative and drive to deliver well-organised events that inspire and celebrate the local community.

We are looking for participating artists for:

Open Studios – do you live in the Romsey area? Would you be willing to open your studios for the day of the festival?

Wheelie Bin Art – need a lead artist to find residents who would like to participate and arrange a group of artists who would want to help create artwork on bins

Art Market at Hope Street Yard – 10 spaces are available for market stalls for art or crafts. Stall hire is £35. Applications will need to be made to Ceri Littlechild –

Film-making  – we are looking for a film-maker to document the main events of Saturday 3rd August.

Fanzine – to create a lasting legacy of the festival and published representation of the local community.

Charity Auction of Art Works – this would require an artist to source works for auction, arrange the venue, publicity and auctioneer. Proceeds could go to local community groups

Alternatively, if you have an idea for an exhibition, workshop, event, or performance that you would be happy to organise and arrange for Saturday 3rd August, please get in touch with Cambridge Art Salon to ensure that it is included in the publicity for Romsey Art Festival.
