Calling all Norfolk artists! Be part of Norfolk & Norwich Open Studios 2017

Applications are now open to take part in one of the most successful Open Studios schemes in the country.
Hundreds of artists across the region take part in Norfolk & Norwich Open Studios each year, inviting the public into their private studios to reveal where and how they work. The event attracts thousands of visitors and this year an estimated 28,000 people visited studios across the county. Artists have the opportunity to promote their work and meet their audience, and visitors see artwork as it happens.
This year 455 artists participated in the scheme across 255 venues - along with 16 Norfolk schools. And artists came together to create 19 Art Trails in various areas across Norfolk, allowing the visitor to enjoy a number of studios all in one day. Art demonstrations, private views, workshops and talks also make up this well-loved event. Find out more and apply here

The deadline for 2017 applications is Friday 9 December 2016.
