Spring Fling Road Show 2012


We are going on a (mini) Road Show! And on the way we would like to meet as many past, present and future Spring Flingers as we possibly can.

Whether you are a seasoned Spring Flinger and you want to share your positive experiences, you have had a few years off and feel ready to apply again, you have thought of applying in the past but weren't sure how, or even if you have never heard of Spring Fling but you would like to know more - this is for you!

We are also keen to meet artists and makers from Cumbria, The Borders, South Ayrshire, East Ayrshire and South Lanarkshire as we will introduce a Neighbours scheme for 2013 opening a number of spaces to professional artists and makers based in our neighbouring regions.

- Our PR company will give some guidelines on how Spring Fling promotes its artists and how artists can promote themselves.
- Spring Fling will talk about how to put in a good application.
