Artists and crafters interested in exhibiting at the region's foremost arts festival are invited to apply to the 2019 Hilton Arts Festival: applications are now open for interested art exhibitors and craft stall holders, as well as vendors offering fresh and unusual food options.
With a riveting programme of art already secured, potential exhibitors wanting to be a part of this year's festival have from 1 March until end of April to get their applications in. Successful artists, crafters and food vendors will be notified by the end of May.
The craft market will also be slightly different this year - the intention is to bring it back to its original brief, and consider first and foremost quality handcrafted, bespoke, unusual and vintage goods of interest. Complementing this will be artisanal food stuffs such as preserves, pickles and breads and cheeses; and plants and flowers. In response to the new parameters, the number of stalls will decrease slightly and the layout will be completely refreshed. The Wild Garden Tent will be for crafters and food outlets only, with a satellite bar. There will be a family friendly area with jumping castles and kiddies entertainment alongside the craft area. First time crafters who haven't exhibited before are especially welcome to apply.
The festival once more celebrates the best of South Africa's magnificent art, theatre, music and the live experience. And this year promises to be no different, with an exciting line up of some of the country's most sought after art exhibitions complementing a myriad productions and shows.
Festival dates are 13 to 15 September. The programme will appear in KZN copies of The Sunday Times on Sunday 11 August.
