Frequently Asked Questions

Have you got a question? We want to spend as much time organising fun events, creating exciting displays and coming up with creative ideas. So before you get in touch to ask a question, take a look to see if your question is here.

We will be updating this list as questions come in, so check back if you come up with another question later!

Will there be community venues?

Yes, there will be community venues available and they will be allocated on a first come, first serve basis. If you’d like to approach other artists or residents yourself, then you are welcome to do so.

How can I get a community venue?

The Community Venues are independent and arrange their own exhibitions. Once a community venue has signed up, we will publish the contact details on the ‘Venues’ page and you will be able to contact them to arrange a spot. Most venues have a ‘first-come-first-served’ policy and you are advised to arrange your spot as early as possible as they are usually over-subscribed.

Some available slots (including cancellations) will be advertised on our social media pages.

I live on ___________ Road, can I be a part of the trail?

If your street isn’t normally a part of the trail, and you’re wondering whether you can take part, of course you can.

However, in previous and other Bristol trails, we’ve found that venues that are by themselves with only one artist in struggle to get the same footfall as others. If you are further out, the only person on your street, or just want to get more visitors, talk to some of your neighbours to see if they can join in too. Or perhaps see if any other artist would like to exhibit with you?

Can more than one artist exhibit at an address?

Yes! You’re more than welcome to have multiple artists at one venue. Simply ensure that each artist has registered to be a part of the trail – that way, we can promote you and your work better.

If you would like us to allocate an artist to you, please get in touch with us. Every artist will need their own membership and listing so that they appear in the map and online promotion.

I can’t get into my account – can you help?

This year, we reset the database, so everyone will need to register a new account this year.

If you are trying to log into an old account, it will no longer be there, so please register fresh.

If you’ve forgotten your password, we can reset it for you, please send us an email so that we can send you your new password.
