More information

Once your application is submitted and accepted, your listing will be edited (only if required- this is mainly to maintain continuity, but also gives a second set of eyes for spelling & grammar etc); your placement in the map (sequence) is confirmed; image supplied (logo) is verified to have proper resolution for reproduction (you’ll be contacted for a new file if not).

Once the guide is compiled and designed (typically late April), you then will be notified to go online and proof your listing to ensure: proper spelling of content, phone numbers, email & web addresses, GPS listing, good colour in images etc, your placement on the map, numbers on map correspond to number in listing, etc. Please note that this is not an opportunity for any edits, re-writes, or any tweaking colour of images supplied.

Once all proofing is complete, the guide goes live on the website (an on-line version of the publication), and then off to be printed (30,000 copies). We then distribute the guides and any other printed marketing materials (such as posters) to the participating artists, as well as all of the NS VICs (NS visitor information centres), the participating galleries (and some others), supporting businesses, major Hfx Hotels, and other points of interest (if you know of any you think would be good please let us know).

You’ll have the privilege of participating in the Studio Rally Weekend. Although an open house policy is preferred to participate in this weekend rally, you have the option to instruct visitors to call ahead for appointment etc if you prefer. We do various things to promote the event such as posting posters, radio & newspaper exposure etc wherever we can get the coverage and several of the participants help to promote the weekend in their region in their own way. Feel free to discuss this with us.

Finally, you’ll have a good feeling knowing you’re part of a bigger initiative to promote the best of the artists and craftspeople of Nova Scotia’s in the prestigious Studio Rally Guide. Welcome!
