Calling artisans and creators of all styles, abilities and artistic mediums

We’re inviting creative people to apply for an Art Market stall space at this year’s Escape ARTfest ‘Art Market’.

We are eager to showcase all original and hand-crafted art, photography, ceramics, jewellery, textiles, clothing, graphic art, sculpture (and anything else you can offer us) at a family friendly, fun and vibrant Art Market in Ulladulla on Saturday 12th October 2019

In order to meet our vision of “Showcasing artists to inspire the community” the Escape ARTfest has established selection criteria which we would like you to consider. You need to meet the criteria in order for you to participate and display you work in the Art Market.

Selection Criteria

Our objective is to include artists from a broad demographic with diverse backgrounds and styles to engage and amaze our festival participants. This is a creative arts day aimed at promoting art and inviting people of all ages and abilities to be creative!

We encourage you to demonstrate your skills and/or engage in discussion about your art practices with our local community members visiting your stall.

ARTfest’s vision for Art Market Stalls

  • Original creative work handcrafted and designed by the stall holder.

  • Display your work in a market style format, which showcases your work to inspire and encourage visitors to be creative.

  • Be interactive with participants, provide live demonstrations creating your work, short tutorials or discussions on how to try techniques related to your work for themselves.

  • Display a variety of traditional and/or contemporary creative practices using a range of media.
