Tattenhall Arts Trail will be a celebration of creativity in our picturesque Cheshire village running for a month in September 2023. It will be a great opportunity for artists within the village or 3 mile radius to show work on their doorstep. Cutting down on their travel costs and time, in a era of artistic and economic struggle, and also helping them build community where they live.
It will add to local venues. We have 68 exhibition spaces agreed throughout the village which shows a great thirst and appreciation of art by local spaces ranging from community centres to shops and outdoor beauty spots.
It will act as a gateway for further creative endevours both by our growing AT planning group and others, allowing us to test the practical elements and the needs for local art.
As well and locals the trail will attract new visitors from beyond the village. Whilst here they can enjoy the local bussiness' and spaces and follow the trail with our map.
What we'll deliver:
- Art shown in at least 30 spots through the village.
- An arts trail map detailing all the exhibits to use and cherish.
- Exposure to the work of new artists whom you never knew lived here.
- Work of well known artists within the village.
- Showcase of at least 3 creative groups from within the village.
- New visitors to the village who might make use of our business offer.
Why it's a great idea:
Artists of Tattenhall (AT) is a new group and this will be our first project. If it goes well we hope to formally establish ourselves and be a cultural hub for the village, supporting the creative endevours of all our community.
Groups such as the local primary school, knitting group and nursery have expressed an interest. Being part of a bigger things gives them more profile, inspiration and companionship.
We aim to show venues how creative input can really add to their spaces and thus nurture and grow our creative economy.
We are commited to a local ethos giving people the chance to get what they need with less travel. This includes adding to an already established cultural offer which includes choirs, writing groups and a craft hub.
By placing art in a wide range of places the wide demographic of our community will get to see it, breaking down the walls which lead people to think "Art isn't for me."
Steps to get it done:
- Art Trail Begins on 10th September
