Kāpiti Arts Trail
We are delighted to confirm that the 2020 Kāpiti Arts Trail will go ahead, on 7/8 and 14/15 November 2020 as originally planned. We are excited to be celebrating 20 years of the Arts Trail with a wonderfully diverse range of artists, and a chance to get close to many of our working artists as they create their artwork.
Applications are now closed. Please contact the Arts Advisor at [email protected] if you wish to go onto the mailing list to receive information about future Arts Trails.
Keep your eye on this website or on our Facebook page for more announcements and information about our artists!
For your reference, here are the Terms and Conditions and other information you agreed to when applying.
- Artist in studio: you are a “working artist” with a studio in the Kāpiti Coast district where you create most of your artwork and where visitors can see you creating your work. Creating art is a significant part of your work life and a main source of your income.
- Established gallery: you must be a gallery whose main business is art, and must be open to the public at regular times during the year. During the Arts Trail most of the artwork in your gallery will be by Kāpiti artists.
- Art society/club or guild: you are an incorporated society that supports a range of member artists, who live in Kāpiti. Some or most of your members will be emerging artists or hobby artists.
- Hub: a shared site with a Hub Manager usually set up for the duration of the Arts Trail, with Hub participants, who are listed under the Hub name in the Council promotion, but do not receive individual profiling.
- Hub participant: you apply to a Hub Manager who will collect your fee and include you in the Hub Manager application. You do not need to fill out the application form her but you should read through the Terms and Conditions,
Participants (Artists in Studios, Hub Managers, Gallery Managers, Guild and Art Society managers) must make themselves aware of what they may be required to do under Level 1 and Level 2 (see the Government COVID-19 website).
You have confirmed in your application that you have:
- prepared a health and safety plan, including hygiene measures during the Trail,
- are prepared to do contact tracing of visitors; and
- considered social distancing measures – ensure visitors have at least a metre space apart in your studio, which may mean restricting the number of people inside the space at a time.
Please inform the Council if a change in the Alert Level means you cannot easily participate.
You can use this Health and Safety plan template but other templates may be used.
