Open call for a programme of light-based and digital art commissions for Saltaire Arts Trail 2017. Saltaire Arts Trail is a community arts event organised by Saltaire Inspired and held annually on the late May Bank Holiday weekend. In 2017 the dates of the Arts Trail will be from 27 to 29 May.
The Arts Trail offers an imaginative visual arts programme, celebrating the village’s rich heritage, and offering opportunities to both emerging and established artists. It prides itself in reaching out to new audiences and making art accessible to all by using imaginative venues – the internationally recognised Salts Mill, public buildings, the homes of Saltaire residents and outdoor spaces around Saltaire, to display visual art outside of traditional settings, as well as delivering new exhibitions and commissions.
In 2017, a successful grant application to Arts Council England (subject to final confirmation) means that Saltaire Inspired is able to add a new dimension to the Arts Trail – a programme of light-based and digital art events.
