Plans for the 2021 Event
For the 2021 event, we are working on developing an exciting programme that will aim to meet new challenges that the year may bring. Due to COVID-19, we know that Spring Fling may be different next year but we do hope that studios will be able to open their doors.
We are also working on developing the accessibility of the event. There are some elements we can’t change such as the access to private studios in homes but we are looking into what we can develop. Two elements we are pursuing is our digital offering and ways to connect with our audiences off the screen.
More information later.

Applications for SF2021
Applications are yet to open for the 2021 event.
These normally open in September each year but due to COVID-19, this has been delayed.
We hope to be able to present information on the 2021 for applicants and also open applications at the beginning of November. These will then be open for 4 weeks.
In order to keep up to date and not miss out, why not join the Upland mailing list?
Our new digital programme and the fact that visitors won’t be travelling from studio to studio means that this year’s event will be our greenest yet! Not only that, but our virtual studios, online workshops and programming will be available internationally for all audiences.
We are pleased to work with and promote environmentally conscious partners and organisations like the Galloway and Southern Ayrshire Biosphere and the Green Arts Initiative and Creative Carbon Scotland.
For next year’s event, we look forward to bringing back our bus and bike tours as well.
