Business Sponsorship Opportunities

We have a vision for the Murwillumbah Art Trail to be the most exciting creative event in the Tweed Shire. As an annual event for our regional art deco town, we wish to attract both national and international tourists to immerse themselves in our unique culture. We want our town to be shining like a diamond and the businesses, artists and the community to benefit from the creative experiences we provide. We wish to create opportunities to inspire and develop artistic talent, enhance local creative identity, promote a sense of place and highlight our Murwillumbah as a destination for cultural tourism.
The project is curated by Annie Long, managed by
Natascha Wernick and auspiced by the Murwillumbah
& District Business Chamber.

When you become a foundation sponsor of the Murwillumbah Art Trail you show your support for our creative Murwillumbah community, in all its diversity, and support for our vision.

About MAT 2017

The Murwillumbah Art Trail 2017: Past, Present, Future (MAT 2017) will be an exhibition of contemporary art that showcases over sixty visual artists from the Tweed Valley and surrounds.  Over a six day period from May 25-30 2017 the town itself becomes the gallery.  
MAT 2017 will weave a network of established galleries, artists’ studios, pop up exhibitions, public art, experimental film shorts, outdoor projection onto buildings, chalk art in the street and more.  Visitors are invited to use the map to follow the exhibition trail or take a guided tour.
