Birmingham Open Studios

Birmingham Open Studios returns this September, bigger than ever before, and now covering even more of the city.

Dozens of artists and creators exhibiting from their own homes and studios on the weekends of 18/19th and 25/26th September. Artists who cannot exhibit from their own homes can buddy-up or use a community space. The event is run like an art trail, and is free to visit and family friendly. The public can pick up printed guide books with maps from across the city, or follow the interactive map and guide on our website www.birminghamopenstudios.com

The event allows artists of all calibre to display and sell as much work as they like, all commission free! The interactive element between the artists and art lovers brings a personal element, and promotes community spirit. The event welcomes experienced and brand new artists of all calibres and styles. However, all art must be tangible and non-performance. 

Artists can exhibit between one, or all 4 days of the event. The event runs 11am-5pm each day. The membership fee is £42 for the event regardless of how many days they participate.

If you wish to know more, please visit our website and read our About Us and FAQ sections, and sign up online. The deadline for submissions is July 15th

Taking place between March and June, the series of conversations (over a platform that most suits the individual) and Artist guided workshops encourage gentle sharing of stories and a range of creative activities, including textiles, illustration, photography, hip-hop and poetry.
