Have you ever wanted to know how to get into the best juried shows? Join us on Thursday, August 8th for our first #dartmouthmakermeetup. In addition to meeting other makers, there will be a panel discussion, featuring members of the Dartmouth Makers board, sharing tips and insights to help you prepare a successful application.

This event is being held at the beautiful MacPhee Centre for Creative Learning on Queen Street in downtown Dartmouth, just around the corner from The Trainyard!

The Dartmouth Makers are a non-profit, volunteer-driven society of artists and crafts people. Our vision is to create a vibrant downtown Dartmouth arts community by creating opportunities to showcase quality work and promote local talents. Originally founded in 2014, our mission is to provide affordable crafts shows where artists, crafters and makers can market and sell their work.
