Your Dulwich Festival Artists' Open House
We hope that you will find Dulwich Festival Artists' Open House a rewarding experience both personally and commercially. It is an excellent opportunity to meet the public, make contacts, receive feedback and sell your work. However, it is a huge undertaking which takes thought and preparation.
You must feel comfortable opening your home to strangers. Visitor numbers can vary widely throughout the day and at each venue. The success of your Dulwich Festival Artists' Open House cannot be guaranteed but the number of visitors you have will be influenced by how much of your own publicity you do.
Many venues choose to have a private view in the run up to Dulwich Festival Artists' Open House as a way of opening up on a high and it can promote sales.
However, it is a matter of personal choice and is not advertised in the catalogue.
