Book Fair open for submissions

Book Fair open for submissions

One of our first events will be hosting an inaugural Artist’s Book Fair in Sheffield, to be held in conjunction with Off the Shelf Festival on October 5th 2019. The Fair will be supported by a programme of other events on the day and will conclude with an Open Forum/Discussion event to discuss the setting up of an Artist’s Book Centre in Sheffield. 

We are inviting applications from artist’s book makers, small presses, universities and any other individuals or groups interested in participating. The event will be held across two superb new spaces in Sheffield city centre, Kurious Arts and Kommune. Both are located at Castle House, in the historic heart of the city, a few minutes walk from bus and train stations, adjacent to the Supertram stop at Castle Square and with plenty of parking close by.

In addition to hosting the Fair, one of our aims for these events is to create the context for networking, gauging interest, brainstorming, and gathering information about the possibility of setting up of an Artist’s Book Centre in Sheffield building upon both the Book Collection and the Artist’s Book Prize itself. The event is supported by Lottery Funding from Arts Council England.

To submit an application to participate at the Book Fair, please use the Application Form on the CuratorSpace website, where you can also get in touch with any questions.
