Don’t miss out on your chance to be a part of this special moment of creative and cultural recovery in our city’s history. In its new June slot, alongside Brighton Fringe, the Artists Open Houses will be a central plank of the cultural regeneration for our city. Following on from the May Brighton Festival, the AOH Festival will offer the first glimpse of brilliant new work from artists and makers emerging from the months of lockdown.

June 2021 AOH Festival weekends:
May 29,30,31 (Bank Holiday) | June 5&6 | 12&13 | 19&20 | 26&27  

We will be continuing to monitor the situation and will plan accordingly should any major changes occur in the coming weeks.

Online Only listings
In addition to regular Open House listings, this year we are also offering an Online Only listing option for artists not opening their houses this time due to the current situation. Online Only listings include video links and online galleries. To register as an Online Only Open House, please register via the registration link above.

The new additional online galleries and video links are also available free to all regular Open House listings.

Who can take part
Anyone living in the 01273 telephone area can take part in the Artists Open Houses (AOH) Festival as an Open House venue. Registration costs can be shared by all artists exhibiting in one venue, meaning that taking part in the festival can be affordable for everyone.

If you live outside the 01273 telephone area, you can still take part in AOH festivals by becoming a ‘guest artist’ exhibiting your work in someone else’s Open House. Take a look at the AOH Directory of artists who are looking for houses to show in.

Whether you’re just starting out in your career, returning after a break, or are a professional and established artist, the Artists Open Houses is a great place to exhibit and be noticed.

“ Artists Open Houses connect artists and makers with an audience of art-lovers, buyers and industry professionals – and is also fun to take part in, exhibiting with your friends in your own home.”
Judy Stevens, Artists Open Houses Festival Director
