Curious about the Connect10 competition? We’re here to help!

We’re getting a lot of interest in the Connect10 competition, which is terrific – this isn’t just a chance to secure a top artist and up to £2000 towards your Museums at Night event, but also offers every venue taking part some great audience development, publicity and creative programming opportunities.

It’s also been great to see venues asking their audiences which artists they’d like to see. One good example is this tweet from Tullie House in Carlisle:
