Upland is looking for venues to host some of our artists and makers for Spring Fling 2018.

Every year we have a handful of participants who need a venue for the open studios weekend. This is either because their studio is unusable or because they are from out with the region and are taking part through our Springback or Neighbour Schemes.

This call out is for businesses and venues across the wide region of Dumfries & Galloway to put forward their space. Selected locations do so free of charge and do not take a commission on any sales made. They are not required to pay anything, just make a suitable space available. In return, their venue benefits from increased visitors over the Spring Fling Open Studios weekend (26-28 May 2018), have their business highlighted in the SF brochure (over 18,000 produced) and are promoted as an SF venue in online marketing.

This is a great opportunity for a local business to capitalise on the promotion and visitors that Spring Fling brings to the region. In 2017 we had our highest visitor numbers to date, with over 14,000 visitors across 93 studios and our public art commission EDGE. Find out more about the 2017 Facts here.

To put yourself forward as a venue please complete this form.

SF applications close on Monday 23 October, once applications are in we assess who needs a venue and start to match up venues. We can't match up everyone so please bear with us. Thank you for your support. If you have any questions please contact Joanna Macaulay: joanna@weareupland.com
