Welcome to Derbyshire Open Arts website

We are delighted to tell you that applications for 2019 will be open from Tuesday 30th October 

Come and join us for a weekend in celebration of art in Derbyshire!

Together we can create an event to remember. It's a great way to make connections and grow your community whilst finding new collectors/buyers.

You will have an entry in the printed  brochure which is distributed widely throughout Derbyshire and surrounding counties.

You will be included on the website for a year - joining a growing community of artists and makers. 

You can include a 30-50 second video with your application which is perfect for promoting you and your work across social media platforms.

The event will be held on 25th, 26th and 27th May 2019 and if you wish to open longer in your venue it is possible to indicate this in your information text under "other opening times" on the application form.

We strongly urge you to make your application as soon as possible, as once Christmas is upon us, things have a habit of getting very busy and there is limited time to apply in January.

Applications must be made by midnight on the closing date of Wednesday 16th January

If you have any problems making your application, or with anything else, which you can not resolve on your own, please leave us a message at
