About us

To Taranaki Art Trail Artists

Taranaki Arts Trail 2020 was scheduled to take place on
June 5 ,6, 7 2020.  With the current Covid 19 Lockdown extending to at least late April we feel it is very unlikely that normal activities, gatherings and events will be allowed to resume by June.

Reluctantly, we are now planning on the Trail being rescheduled at a later date.  We know how important the Trail is to you and your livelihoods. We also know how much our visitors enjoy meeting you and viewing your work.

It’s too early to fix a date, but we are working on it.  We have already printed the brochures for the 2020 Trail so your contact details are out there for people to make direct contact with you after this “Lockdown.” We know the reschedule will not suit everyone, but hopefully with sufficient warning, you can make it work.

Once we can fix a new date we will get that info up on all social media channels and print a sticker to update the brochures before we distribute them far and wide. We will probably need your help to do the over sticking – that will be a celebratory occasion.

We are also looking at the option of virtual tours of your workshops – you film a short video talking about your work and introduce yourself to visitors.  We have promoted some brilliant videos over the last few Trails, so please give it a go.  More information from Niki will be coming your way soon.

Finally, any ideas you are able to share to help fellow artists and your fans get through this lonely time, please make contact with either Niki or myself.
