What is the Tour?
We are inviting people to come visit the area and drive around to various creative spaces to watch artisans at work, see examples of what they are doing, and purchase items the artisans are selling. You will be opening your space up to the public for two days and getting more exposure for your work.
If you don’t have a creative space that is conducive to having the public visit, this is not a problem. We are encouraging artisans to form Hubs. This is a place that is suitable for the public where two or more artisans are working and showing their work. The visiting artisan will need to find a way to make part of their creative process portable to work at another location. There is an advantage to having two or more artists in one location; hubs attract more people.
Who can participate?
Anyone that has a creative outlet is eligible, and this is a great event to showcase your talent. If you are an outlet for creative talents, then this tour is also for you, be it a gallery, makerspace, or culinary space, etc.
Passports & Prizes
The public will be able to pick up passports at all locations around the tour. Each artisan will be given a stamp to validate that a person was at their location. We will collect these passports and award prizes to the drawing winners. If you would like to donate a prize for the drawing, your business logo will be featured in the passport.
Other Ways to Participate
The brochures and website will be providing promotional opportunities for sponsors. If you would like to become a sponsor, contact [email protected]. The West Central Mountain Creative District is a non-profit; all proceeds will go toward the promotion of the event.
