General FAQ Do you have a COVID-19 Safety Plan? Yes - although the Peel Open Studios event takes place at multiple venues across the Peel region, and does not encourage mass gatherings, a COVID-19 safety plan has been prepared to protect the welfare of participating artists and visitors. All artists will be required to familiarise themselves with the safety plan, and agree to abide by the protocols prior to registering.
Artist FAQ Who is eligible to register in the Peel Open Studios? All practising artists (emerging, professional or hobbyist) are able to register to take part in the open studios event, as long as the studio or art premise is located within the Peel region (incl. Mandurah, Boddington, Murray, Serpentine-Jarrahdale and Waroona).
Are we eligible to participate if we are a local art group or collective? Yes! Art groups may choose to participate as a collective. In this circumstance, the normal registration fee will be charged once and the art group will receive one collective listing (eg. ‘Mandurah Painters Association’ will be listed as one body).
Am I able to share my studio space with another artist? Yes! If two artists share a studio space, they may choose to split the payment or register individually. In the instance that artists choose to split a payment, only one artist profile will be listed (eg. the duo will occupy one listing on the printed program, and share a webpage on the website).
Am I able to register as an individual artist, and as part of an art collective? Yes - Artists are able to register as both an individual artist, and as part of a collective. However, two separate registrations will be required and artists will need to clearly indicate if their studio will be closed for specific days during the event.
