Art Bazaar is celebrating it’s 20th anniversary this year and applications for stalls are still open. Be a part of Art Bazaar which has been held every year since 2002!
Drawn from across the Hunter region, the majority of Hunter Arts Network’s wide variety of stallholders are exclusive to Art Bazaar. The locals and visitors who shop at Art Bazaar have discovered their favourite local Hunter makers and keep returning to Art Bazaar to find them. The point of difference with Art Bazaar is that you won’t find many HAN stallholders at other markets – most of HAN’s members will only set up stalls at Art Bazaar.
When Art Bazaar began back in 2002 it was originally held in Laman Street. Art Bazaar started with an idea from Newcastle City Council and this is how Hunter Arts Network was formed. Twenty years ago Art Bazaar began to develop a loyal following and fan base. HAN is run by a dedicated committee of volunteers who have also worked hard to celebrate all modalities of visual arts.

Clothing to cover all hot/cold options & sun protection
Tablecloths to cover the tables
Paper carry bags and paper bags (customise these with business cards) for sales

Display stands/items for your work….you can be creative with this ie old suitcases/timber children’s chairs/jewellery trees that seem to pop up everywhere in home stores etc
Small kit of stationery items ie scissors/safety pins/black marker texta/sticky tape
Pack the car the night before
Leave your day to day handbag at home and only take what is essential for security reasons/bring a small crossover bag for your change/ or bumbag
If you are by yourself tell ALL your friends to drop in and say hello so you at least get a toilet break!
Introduce yourself to your neighbouring stalls
Chains or mesh to hang from the market tent to hang wall art
Collect customer details
Plenty of drinking water
If you make clothes of jewellery, wear it on the day
Be doing something with your hands, sewing or painting or other making as people like seeing creative people being creative, it not only creates a topic of conversation but you are not sitting there starring at the customer, freaking them out
