*Call for Entries* Table Top Museum - Open House 2018

The Art Workers' Guild
Sunday 23 September, 11 am - 6 pm
The Art Workers' Guild Table Top Museum is back for its third year, in conjunction with Open House weekend.  Join us for an inventive celebration of the madness and the individual and extraordinary rules of those who collect, organised by Bro. Stephen Fowler and PM George Hardie.

We are calling for submissions from Brothers of the Guild and their friends who would like to exhibit their collections, be they large or small. This year, the focus is again on 'Museums', rather than simply collections. Submissions will be discussed by the Outreach Committee and accepted on the basis of the classification, narrative and explanations provided, as well as the quality, quirkiness or interest of the collection itself.  

If you'd like to take part, but cannot attend on the day itself, we are also reserving a table for a collection of Matchbox Museums. You can send your micro museums in the post to Leigh Milsom Fowler at the Guild.

                       Examples of Matchbox Museums

The Museum forms part of Open House Weekend, and will feature on their website and catalogue.  Please send details of your collection to Leigh on answering the following by Friday 31 August. 

- Name
- Contact email and telephone number
- Specify whether table or matchbox entry
- Title of Museum/collection
- Description of Museum/collection - 40 words maximum (this will be for use in promotional material if submission is accepted)

We look forward to hearing from you!
