Accreditation of new artists for 2022

Open Studios West Berkshire and North Hampshire welcomes applications for accreditation from artists who have a strong commitment to the visual arts, craft or design, including film, architecture, fashion, textiles, digital media and installation.

There are over 300 accredited artists in the scheme; they come from a variety of backgrounds. Most have undertaken art school or university training, but not everyone is in this category. The main requirement is a strong commitment to a particular art form or forms, a working space suitable to show good practice, use of materials, sketch books, sources of inspiration and a sound body of work. The registration fee for Open Studios 2021 for an Accredited Artist to have an annual entry on this website was £75.

To register your interest in joining the scheme and applying for Accreditation, please complete the New Artists 2022 Application Form below and return it to us before 5pm on Friday 27th August 2021.

All applicants will, in August 2021, be required to send in a current CV, an artistic statement and photos of recent works.
