Call for Gloucestershire artists: Coloured Earth Festival

We would like to extend an invitation to local artists in Gloucester and Gloucestershire for the event we are organising this year with Marketing Gloucester as part of Art in the City, a SoMAC event.

The Coloured Earth Festival will take place in King's Square, Gloucester on Saturday & Sunday (15th & 16th July 2017) An International Pavement Art Competition with a total prize-pot of £1500.  For the first time, the worlds’ finest street-painters will be coming to Gloucester from Mexico, Europe and all parts of the UK to compete in this prestigious award.  We are working in partnership with top international events, including the Bella Via Festival in Monetary, Mexico and the Toulon Festival of Street Painting in France. 

We are particularly keen to hear from artists who may never have done pavement art before and who are willing to take up the challenge! They will also have the opportunity to work alongside some of the best artists from across the globe, a truly international event! 

Materials and refreshments are provided.
