Dee (Diane) Hirst By Dee (Diane) Hirst

We are Worcestershire, amateur & professional artists - planning an Art & Craft Show & Sale to showcase local talent, support art based small business, while raising money for covid affected children

The Show will be held at the Bromsgrove Hotel and Spa in Bromsgrove between 9-11 July. At the event there will be stalls with individual artists showcasing their talents, whether it be glass, ceramics, textiles or art. There will also be a demonstration of a Wildlife study in pastels to inspire the public to join an art class and lots of opportunity to buy useful items for the home and garden all produced by talented local artists. We are aiming for a party atmosphere with balloons, opportunities to win a major artwork, with meals, snacks and refreshments supplied by the Hotel; all creating a fun packed day out for the people of Bromsgrove and Worcestershire. The whole event will certainly kick start the party Post Covid and put Bromsgrove back on the map: - as a forward thinking, art appreciating, community involved Town of today!

What we'll deliver:

  • A Taster Launch event in the BirdBox Town Centre
  • Ambient, well equiped facilies to showcase both Craft and Art talent
  • A curated Art Exhibition
  • A fun filled free day out for all the public to enjoy

Why it's a great idea:

It relaunches many small Worcester art based businesses that have had no opportunity to work in the last 12 months. Re connects local amateur art communties and Showcases their talent. This will Inspire the more people to believe in themselves, to take up and enjoy creating their own art, by signing up for classes. Gives a fun event to all, with the opportunity to purchase quality hand produced local goods, created lovingly by local professional and amateur artists.

Steps to get it done:

  • Publicity and engagement from artists, exhibitors and the general public
  • A full publicity campaign - TV & Radio campaign
  • Progress updates to Art Publications and Art Groups
  • Internet Social media campaign on FaceBook, Twitter, Instagram etc
  • Promotion information to participating artists - posters for their local areas, to increase footfall
  • Engage community with support from Bromsgrove & Worcestershire Councils
  • Poster campaign in local shops and supermarkets throughout the region
  • Advertise free advance tickets on Eventbrite to promote footfall
  • Aim for 2000 plus visitors to the event
  • Celebrity Launch at Event Opening
  • Pre Show Taster Event in BirdBox Bromsgrove Town Centre, week-end prior to main show
  • Large size Roadside Banner & Flags in front of Hotel/Venue on A38 (2 weeks prior to event)

We have aspirations to create a permanent internet Showcase for Worcestershire Artistic Talent - funding permitting?
