Skills Share Pitches

The official deadline for applications was the 19th November, however we still have space for commercial pitches and may be able to support some additional non-commercial pitches.

What we are looking for:

Creatives and small businesses who take pride in making and are interested in sharing their values and processes with the public. This might be by demonstrating part of the making process, providing taster sessions, written information e.g. ‘how to’ guides, or simply by offering a beautifully crafted product and talking to people as you make sales.

We’ve already had lots of interest in the pitches, so a panel drawn from the Arts Festival team and bursary holders will select from applications based on the following criteria:

  • feasibility
  • level of interest and engagement on offer for visitors
  • balancing the overall range of activity and practices

About the Pitches

        Non-commercial pitches where there is free activity on offer will be awarded a £100 bursary and can apply to a small festival fund for material costs
