Kāpiti Arts Trail: Information for 2020 Participants
On this page, you will find all the information you will need to know to be a participant in the 2020 Kāpiti Arts Trail, welcome to our 20th year!
Have a great summer everyone! Meri Kirihimete me ngā mihi o te tau hou ki a tātou katoa!
We are also having a break but once we are back will be analysing in depth the survey data and feedback about this year’s Trail from both artists and visitors.
We are also processing suggestions from the surveys, from the artists’ hui and conversations with many other artists, and from our internal team members to lay the ground for planning the next Trail.
We’ll be in touch early-ish next year with more about what we plan to do, based on what we know works and the suggestions and feedback from everywhere. (Applications will open April/May so there is plenty of time to refine the planning.)
Next year’s dates:
Probably the same two weekends as this year, i.e. 6/7 and 13/14 November: To be absolutely confirmed early next year.
Last week the Mayor drew the winner of the Visitor Survey prize draw, Denise DeVorms from Levin. Denise is a regular on the Trail and visited sites from Paekākāriki to Ōtaki. She thought the Trail was great “as always” and was excited seeing some of the newer participants this year.
Denise has a voucher for $200, which she will give to the artist whose work she selects: if this is you, please contact me to arrange to invoice Council for this amount.
Participant artists on Facebook can sign up to the Kāpiti Arts Trail Artists’ page. This is a closed group, moderated by Steering Group artists’ representative(s).
The purpose of the group is to support each other, share and sound out ideas, and let others know of your own activities.
There are ground rules for contributing, based on courtesy. The moderators may block posts or contributors that depart from these ground rules.
We have a great team to support the trail this year, with a mix of people that have been involved for many years and staff for other areas of the business to help us grow the Trail.
