come to saltaire arts trail!
There are just a couple of days to go now until the lovely Saltaire Arts Trail. This is an event I've been part of ever since it started, evolving out of an event as part of the Saltaire Festival; first becoming an entity in its own right but sitting alongside the Festival and now going it alone as a stand alone event at a different time of year. From selling at the Makers' Fair, to helping organise said Makers' Fair, and then onto the board of Saltaire Inspired (the organisation that runs the Arts Trail), my involvement has evolved too!
This is always such a lovely feast of arts-related activities (I know I'm biased but it really is true!), from open houses filled with wonderful artwork from all over Yorkshire, to curious interactive exhibitions, family activities to a record breaking cinema and much much more. It is run almost entirely by a bunch of wonderful volunteers and it is amazing what they manage to pull out of the bag. Just hope for lovely weather and get on down to the inspiring World Heritage Site that is Saltaire this weekend...
