MayDaysArtsTrail 2018
Hello MDAT Artists  

 MDAT is an annual local art festival and open studio event, run by artists for artists and the community in which we live. MDAT is run by a group of makers and shakers, drawn from artists who take part; communication is mainly by email. We all have our special skills and interests, but in addition we carry out functions as outlined below. 
We have a couple of open business meetings each year to which all MDAT artists are invited. 
One is in June soon after the end of MDAT (to review what was good, and what needs fixing) , and a planning meeting in September where we agree the committee, and dates and deadlines for next years MDAT.  We have a couple of socials to which all MDAT artists and partners are invited. If you would like to be involved, please let us know.

If  you are interested but undecided in joining the 2018 trail.
Have a look at our our information sheets ' advice and tips' and 'Mentors'
Email ' Interested' to art-trail@mjpeacock.co.uk. which will add you to our mailing list which will keep you in the loop. Your name would be good too.
