Perhaps it’s the bracing moorland air, but Tavistock just seems to attract one festival after another, even when the Dantes’ biennial event officially centres on the Tamar Valley.
Drawn to the Valley artists are inviting Plymouth artists to open their studios (or homes, or sheds) during the first week of the British Art Show 2011, beginning September 17. The British Art Show will attract extra art-lovers to Plymouth, and Drawn to the Valley will be part of the Fringe events taking place.
Drawn to the Valley artists of the Tamar Valley, an established group of artists and makers with a high public profile in the South West, require a part-time paid arts co-ordinator to oversee and organise their activities.
The industrial mining landscape of the Tamar Valley and Victorian Tavistock will be explored on a creative writing called the John Taylor Heritage Weekend – Canals, Copper and Creative Writing on Saturday, November 21 and Sunday, November 22.
