There are three categories available:
Individual artists and galleries may also choose “listing only” in the Kāpiti Arts Guide, which provides year-round advertising online and in the printed Guide. See “Listing Only” inclusion in the Kāpiti Arts Guide.
Definition: Artists in Studio have a working studio and provide a good visitor experience. They will be open to the public for both weekends of the trail. It’s not unusual for two or three artists to share one studio space, but they must each apply separately.
Artists exhibiting in a Hub (“Artists in Hub”) must apply directly to the Hub before submitting their Kāpiti Arts Trail application.
Artist in Studio and Artist in Hub applications will be assessed subject to the following conditions:
You can apply to be listed in the Kāpiti Arts Guide as a studio artist or gallery and not participate in the Trail.
Definition: A Hub is usually a larger space with multiple artists exhibiting during both weekends of the trail. The Hub accepts the artists (in accordance with the following criteria) before those artists submit their individual applications and pay their application fee. The Hub may charge additional fees to cover the cost of equipment and venue hire.
Hub applications will be assessed subject to the following criteria:
Definition: An Established Art Gallery is one that is open to the public at regular hours throughout the year, or for a regular period in the year e.g. during summer. An Art Society or Guild is a group that is community based and meets regularly, and exhibits on an occasional basis. We refer to these collectively as "gallery" in the follwing criteria.
Each Gallery is responsible for selecting their own artists/exhibition, which should occupy a significant area of the venue. The selection will showcase Kāpiti-based artists during the Kāpiti Arts Trail, in accordance with the Arts Trail mission to celebrate the arts on the Kāpiti Coast and for participation of emerging and established artists.
Gallery applications will be assessed subject to the following criteria:
If you are unsure which category to apply under, please contact the Arts Advisor.
You can apply to be listed in the Kāpiti Arts Guide as a studio or gallery and not participate in the Trail.
Whitireia Kāpiti Campus, Kāpiti Road, Paraparaumu will be operating as a Hub. The contact for this Hub is Carole at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We'll update you on further Hub possibilities.
The fee is $180 incl GST for each full particpant category, or $120 incl GST for a listing in the guide only. (This slight price increase reflects adjustment for inflation.).

All full participants receive:
Artists and art galleries (including art societies and guilds) who choose the option "listing only" in the Guide receive:
Each fee-paying artist, gallery, art society, guild and advertiser will receive a 1/3-page listing in the 2018/19 Kāpiti Arts Guide, featuring the 2018 Kāpiti Arts Trail, which includes:
15,000 copies of the Guide will be printed for distribution to selected i-SITEs, libraries, and cafés etc. in the lead up to the Arts Trail, and for the rest of 2018 and 2019 up until the 2019 Kāpiti Arts Trail.
Copies will be reprinted as required after the Arts Trail. The Guide may be advertised when promoting other Kāpiti arts events.
The Kāpiti Arts Guide (the Guide) is published in preparation for the Kāpiti Arts Trail but is designed to be a guide for visitors to Kāpiti throughout the year. This means that both Arts Trail participants and others listed in the Guide receive year-round advertising, online and in print. Printed guides are placed in libraries, galleries, and at tourist information centres (i-SITEs) in Kāpiti and in other districts, and regularly replenished. The Kāpiti i-SITE regularly use the Guide to help visitors select studios and galleries to visit.
Studio listings should state opening hours or if the studio can be open by appointment during the year.
It is also helpful to state if visits can be at short notice, so that i-SITE staff and others referring to the Guide can advise visitors.
Yes it is! You can list your art studio or arts-based community programme in the guide even if you aren’t participating in the trail. You will be charged a cheaper rate than trail participants as you will not be appear in other publicity for the trail. You will receive all the benefits mentioned above in "What does my Kāpiti Arts Guide listing include?" and “What does “Listing Only” inclusion in the
Kāpiti Arts Guide provide?”
Arts-based community group applications to list in the guide will be assessed on the following criteria:
1. Your group should have a focus on visual arts-based activities (workshops classes, etc).
2. Your group should provide regular opportunities for the community to be involved in arts activities throughout the year.
3. The objectives of your group should include nurturing and developing artistic ability.
Applications for the Kāpiti Arts Guide (advertising only) cost $120 incl GST and should be made online from 3 April at www.kapiticoast.govt.nz/apply-for-the-arts-guide. Applications are due by 15 May.
