We are currently seeking venues interested in playing an active role for Artists on Location, or seeking to display artwork within downtown Creemore throughout the weekend of Sept 29 & 30 (10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily) Please note that we ask artists to engage with the public at the display venue throughout the weekend as this is an aspect of the festival that is especially meaningful to visitors.
Deadline for your expression of interest is July 30, 2018.
Purpose of the event:- To engage the village in the Creemore Festival of the Arts- To attract festival-goers to Mill Street with exciting work by artists and artisans- To enhance the festival experience for visitors through interactions with artists at each venue- To provide a platform for art sales and connections with potential art clients- To attract an arts-focused clientele to Creemore to support the business community- To promote Creemore as a creative, charming and inclusive destiny- To create an opportunity for artists to receive valuable public feedback on their work

2. Sign up below and we will provide you with a list of potential artist or artisan partners.
Registration:We are not charging a registration fee this year. Instead, we ask that both the venue and the artist become members of Purple Hills Arts & Heritage Society, if they are not already members. Membership for businesses in town is $100 per year. With that membership, you become a sponsor and your name is included on our website (phahs.ca), social media (@purplehillsarts), brochure and poster, and media outreach.
This year, we are asking that venues and artists sign an agreement to clarify the terms of participation -- financial and otherwise. We can help with the agreement details. To view the agreement form click here (inset pdf)
