Cam Valley Arts Trail Group - who are we?
Cam Valley Arts Trail Group is an organisation made up of local artists and craftspeople that formed in March 2013 to set up a new annual arts trail for our local area. The aim of the group is to promote the arts and support local artists and craftspeople that live and work in and around the Cam Valley which fall outside of established events in the Bath and Chew Valley areas.
The name; 'Cam Valley Arts Trail'
On deciding the name we wanted a direct reference to our area and the type of trail we wanted to be; 'Cam' has been taken from name of brook running though area and the use of 'arts' rather than 'art' we felt reflects the more diverse nature of talents we want to attract and share.
The Blackbird Logo
Back in 2013 when we first formed we wanted a visual identity for the trail. Kate Westcott a textile artist, based in Timsbury, kindly allowed us to use her blackbird image as our logo. You will see this on our publicity material.
As members, artists are able to promote their work and events on this website, take part in member only events and have the benefit of being covered by our group insurance. Whilst the annual Arts Trail remains open to non members all members will get a preferential registration fee for the event.
Venue fees at events are not included in the membership but costs will be kept to a minimum to cover expenses eg publicity & venue hire.
Membership fees will go towards supporting the insurance, the website and admin costs. The Cam Valley Arts Trail Group remains a non-profit organisation with many hours of organisation being given on a voluntary basis. Membership costs £15pa and will run from 1st April - 31st March.
