Seaton Tramway will also be introducing their new community project ‘The Marvellous Mosaic Project’ which would provide an interactive backdrop to the fair. Visitors and the local community will be invited to be a small part of a big picture. Using any medium available to them, these small pieces will fit together to create a large piece of artwork to be displayed at the Tramway. Local schools and businesses will be invited to participate, as will visitors to the Tramway. Due to the changes in restrictions, the final piece will be a digital mosaic, displayed online and in Seaton Station.
The final piece will be displayed during the arts fair from 19th – 25th April.
The Wild Arts Fair and Competition is supported by National Lottery Heritage Fund, Seaton Jurassic, Wild East Devon & Devon Arts Supplies. To find out more and get information on how to submit visit www.tram.co.uk/WildArt
