STart Stafford Town Art Trail

A chance to see exciting, contemporary artworks celebrating the heritage of the Stafford town.

The  STart  Trail  aims  to  promote  some  of  the  many  historic  buildings  in  and  around  the  market  square.  The artworks by students on the Foundation Degree in Contemporary Art Practice at Stafford  College  will be exhibited in ten venues and lead you from one building to the next around the trail.  The  idea  is  to  celebrate  the  history  of  Stafford  and  encourage  residents  and  visitors  to  investigate  some  of  the  unique  and  beautiful  buildings  in  the  town.

Second  year  student  Sam  Mace  said  “In  our  busy  lives  it’s easy  to miss  the  beautiful  things  around  us.  The  trail  is  about  taking time  take  a  look  and  appreciate  some  of  the  lovely  old  buildings  that  we  have  in  the  town  and  getting  to  know  them  a  bit  more.  We hope that all age groups will find something to enjoy.”

The  trail  will  be  launched  at  the  Ancient  High  House  at  10.30am  on  Saturday  22nd  March  and  will  run  until  the  30th  March.

Maps  will  be  available  at  venues  and  a  full  list  of  participating  venues  can  be  found  on  the  Facebook  page  ‘The  STart  Trail.’
