Pop Up Gallery Initiative

Archiimp is giving local artists the opportunity to be part of its 2018 Pop Up Gallery Initiative.

This is a great opportunity to display and sell your work direct to the public during increased visitor times. You will have wall and floor space and be promoted in the event marketing and PR. The galleries are for artisans who hand make their craft and are local to Worcester.

The Pop Up Gallery Initiative is a project to:

  • use unloved, unrented spaces throughout the City of Worcester
  • provide an outlet to showcase unknown artistic talent of Worcester 
  • provide space for artists to display and promote their work, and the opportunity to interact with clients, new buyers and fellow artists
  • to provide a space for residents, visitors and tourists to meet artists and view new artwork
  • increase awareness of Art within Worcester
  • increase awareness of the Artists themselves
  • assist more inexperienced artists with customer interaction, display techniques and other valuable skills and knowledge
  • help the more experienced artist with increasing their network
  • is fully supported by MP Robin Walker, Worcester City Council, Worcester Tourism and local retailers

Archiimp will promote event via its Blog and social media network, as well as links to artists websites and/or social media sites. Promotions will include artist name (& brand), public contact details, web links and images of work. 

Each event is promoted widely on social media and local papers running up to the opening, a piece from each artist will be displayed in The Ounce (formally the Marwood) for ten days prior to the event itself, promotional posters are given out across the city and are available to each artist to promote themselves, larger promotional banners are placed on event site windows before the event. 

All planning, trade licences, logistics and event management are dealt with by Archiimp.

The pop up galleries are complementary to other art events and so they will not clash with the Worcester Festival or Worcester Open Studios.
