The Fringe

Over the years Artweek has grown to include venues across the Holme Valley and surrounding areas to form “The Fringe”.

Our visitors love to extend their stay by visiting our Fringe venues.

Exhibitions at 34 venues across the Holme Valley, Colne Valley and beyond made up our Fringe exhibition last year.

These venues feature an exciting and diverse array of work from a variety of different artists.

To ensure the best possible experience for our visitors and exhibitors we make an initial assessment of each venue/exhibition proposal to confirm location etc are appropriate.

Please complete the form below so we have your contact information and can confirm if your proposal is suitable.

Deadline for applications is midnight, 31st March.

Successful applicants will be invoiced directly for their registration fee of £50 and will then be required to provide further details and photographs for the printed “Artweek Guide”.

Considering becoming a fringe event?

Here are some top things to consider:

  • We ask for a small contribution to take part in Artweek, this covers a full page in the guide for your event, as well as marketing materials such as posters and signs.
  • By signing up to be an Artweek Fringe event you are agreeing to passing on at least 20% of any artwork sales to Artweek.
  • We ask for venues and artists to arrange and coordinate themselves, and although we can be on hand to help, we ask that artists and venues link up and manage any logistics, the displaying of work, staffing the venue as well as sales and payment details.
  • If you are a venue, you should only apply once you have an artist sorted to exhibit in your space. Likewise, if you are an artist, you should only apply once you have a venue sorted to exhibit your work.
  • Although we love having a wide variety of Fringe venues in various locations we cannot accommodate all requests. You should consider if your venue is the right size, in the right location and has the right footfall to make it the ideal place to become a fringe event.
