The organisers of the hugely successful annual Belper Arts Trail have come up with a new idea to boost local arts.
The ‘Derwent Valley Art Crawl Guide 2018’ will provide publicity for around 50 local artists, galleries, studios and arts related establishments to help connect them to the wider public and to further strengthen this area as a ‘centre of excellence’ for the arts.
The ‘guide’, in the form of a foldout leaflet with local arts directory and map, will be distributed from the beginning of 2018 in local tourist information outlets with a view to drawing more visitors to the area. The project will also be supported via social media.
Suzanne Parnell says:
“We have chosen the Derwent Valley area in order to give a wider geographical spread but also to be in tune with the Derwent Valley World Heritage Corridor. We are being supported in this enterprise by Amber Valley Borough Council and Marketing Peak District and Derbyshire. We are also going to be liaising closely with the Derwent Valley Trust.”
Look out for the guide in 2018!
