Sydenham Artists Trail 2021 Application

The trail will take place over the weekends of 11th / 12th and 18th / 19th September.

Applications and payment must be received before July 4th 2021. Should the Artists Trail be cancelled as a result of Government action you will receive a full refund of any entry fees, or you may transfer to being a virtual artist exhibiting on our website.

The entry fee is £50 per artist exhibiting in their own space or £70 if you need us to find a space for you.*

Artists who only exhibit virtually (i.e. using the website to display their art) will pay a reduced £20 entry fee.

Students (under 18) will be charged a nominal £10 entry fee, but please contact if this is a problem.

The entry fee for groups of artist or collectives with 5 or more artists is £150. In order to maintain fairness to individual artists, we will work with groups to understand their proposed participation/number of artists. This may result in additional entry fees to cover administrative and practical costs incurred.

* Venues/Locations will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. Any Additional charges, at cost, for any venues, display boards, tables or other equipment we need to hire for you will be passed on to you the Artist (although we would always discuss this with you beforehand, and will aim to minimise the occurrence of any additional costs).

We hope that some traders in Sydenham Road, Sydenham Station Approach and Kirkdale will provide space in their windows for artists to showcase one piece of artwork during the Sydenham Artists Trail. The artwork will be on display for about 4 weeks during September.
One of Sydenham Arts aims is to reduce our carbon footprint, including by economising single use materials. Therefore, this year, we will produce and distribute a more eco-friendly A3 sized Artists Trail brochure and map (folded to A5 size). This will contain your name, type of art, venue and exhibition dates. All other information will be available on the website - see below.
Sydenham Arts are developing a new website which is scheduled for delivery in July. This will provide a more streamlined way for artists to add information to their artist page containing images, biography and links to their own website and / or social media.

You will be sent details and guidance about how to set up your artist page in August in good time to set up your page. The Artists Trail team will be available to help you, if necessary.
For information purposes only please let us know your website (if you have one).
For information purposes only please let us know your social media addresses (any number and all)
Would you like to run a workshop or demonstration during the Artists Trail? You will not need to pay an entry fee if you only run a workshop or demonstration (i.e.without also exhibiting your art.) You may charge visitors and to cover material used in the workshops. It is not usual to change visitors to watch demonstrations.

Please provide initial ideas about your workshop or demonstration. Final details will be required by July 4th.
