Medway’s independent open studios and arts festival returns from Saturday 6th to Sunday 14th July 2019, with many different venues to visit and a wide variety of work on show by local artists.

Visitors are welcomed to explore the hidden creative work spaces and secret studios of Medway, take part in activities and events at local arts venues, view exhibitions, talk to artists, buy art and crafts, and see first hand the array of artistic talent and opportunities in this impressively creative area of Kent.

Look out for the printed festival brochure featuring all the participating venues when this is distributed throughout the Medway towns through June. Until we have this years listings and programme all worked out, you can download the 2018 festival brochure, or browse last year’s artist and venue listings.

Keep an eye on our Facebook pageInstagram and Twitter feed for sneaky peeks of our preparations, and news on the activities you’ll be able to enjoy during the nine days of open studios.
