Frequently asked questions
I would like to take part in the arts trail. What do I need to do?
Use the 'Registration' link in the menu, you will find information about the process and about venues as you need to have secured a venue before you can sign up. Fill out all your details, add a photo ect you will then be forward to PayPal (you can use PayPal to pay by credit or debit card, you do not need to have a PayPal account) to pay the joining free and thats it. Registration opens on 12 January and runs until 5 March.
I have become a member of the SBA, what next?
I don’t yet have a venue to exhibit in. What should I do?
Although things were different in the past, to reduce the work load on our volunteers, artists now need to secure a venue before they can sign up and pay the membership for the arts trail. You can find a list of partner venues to get in touch with here.
I want to offer premises as a venue to other artists but don't want to exhibit art myself. What should I do?
In that case, you do not need to become a member of the SBA yourself. Just e-mail our communications team (email@example.com) Or contact us through the website to let them know what sort of art you'd like to host and how to get in reach you and we'll advertise it on our list of available venues. Any interested artists can then get in touch with you directly.
Any artists exhibiting in your venue will need to be members of the SBA in order to be included in the Trail Guide and to give them (and you) maximum exposure.
