The Witness Hilton Arts Festival has announced that the application process to exhibit art work at this year’s festival is now open. Embedded into the glorious mix of activities at KZN’s foremost arts festival, the annual Witness Hilton Arts Festival is a series of visual arts exhibitions to take place on the beautiful grounds of the Hilton College from September 17 to 20.

Last year the visual arts component of the festival was reconfigured to create new spaces for exhibitions to take place.

Festival Director, Sue Clarence stated, “The overwhelming response from all of our wonderful artists and the public from last year, was that the exhibition was a grand success and raised the image of the festival as a whole. Something we were delighted to hear. Moving forward, we have made a few improvements and changes. The festival will have two art tents this year situated adjacent to each other near the Bell Tower, on the upper level.”

Closing dates for the application process and application fee of R250 is June 5, 2015. The selection committee will make their choices by June 19.
