Norfolk & Norwich Open Studios 2012
Norfolk Open Studios 2012 runs from 26 May – 10 June 2012.
Norfolk & Norwich Open Studios is delivered by Norfolk & Norwich Festival in partnership with Norfolk artists for the benefit of Norfolk artists. Each year for the last 16 years, hundreds of artists scattered across the county have opened up their studios, homes, garden sheds and outhouses to the public to create a unique and personal visual arts event.
The scheme gives the public a chance to meet artists in an informal setting, see and buy or commission artwork and discuss the techniques and processes used to create the work. It gives artists the chance to connect with their audience and in many cases the public can watch as they work in their studio setting.
Norfolk & Norwich Open Studios (NNOS), has established itself as one of the largest and most successful open studio schemes in the country. In 2011, an estimated 33,000+ members of the public roamed the county to visit 347 participating artists in 236 venues and an estimated total of £256,433 worth of art was sold.
Norfolk & Norwich Festival aims to use the transformational nature of the arts, culture and creativity to bring about positive change for individuals, communities and the spaces in which they live.
The organisation works with local, national and international partners to deliver the annual Norfolk & Norwich Festival each May, Norfolk Open Studios and Creative Partnerships, England’s flagship creative learning programme.
Full programme available in April 2012.
