Sponsorship – 2019 Mud Trail

The Mud Trail event is made possible by the
generous support of our local sponsors.

The North Coast Mud Trail is only made possible by the generous support of our local sponsors. This sponsorship offers a fantastic opportunity for your business to be “on the map” and be an integral part of people’s weekend as they travel around to visit the participating Open Studios. This year is the 7th consecutive year of the Trail and it has become a popular event which is looked forward to by all ceramic lovers and visitors coming from far afield as well as hundreds of locals.

If your business has anything to do with ceramics, if your clientele appreciate hand-made ceramics, or if your business offers food or coffee or a great stop for visitors on the Mud Trail then you should be on the map!

Your advertising/sponsorship contribution goes towards printing the Mud Trail Brochure (10,000 full colour brochures to be printed this year and widely distributed around all Northern Rivers towns) and promotion of the event in all the media (T.V., Radio, Newspapers, Social Media) and on our website. Your sponsorship also will appear on the interactive map which most visitors download on to their mobile phones.

This August literally hundreds of potters and ceramic artists around the country will open their studios to the public for the fourth annual Australian Ceramics Open Studios. This national event is hosted by the Australian Ceramics Association.

As part of this initiative, on Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 August 2019, over 20 Northern NSW potters in idyllic locations, from the hinterland to the coast, will open their studio doors for the 2019 North Coast Mud Trail.

Each year, the potters, together with sponsors from the local business community, publish a North Coast Mud Trail brochure (including a map). This brochure includes information about each of the potters participating in the Mud Trail and a map indicating the location of all potters and our sponsors.

Sponsorship does NOT include your business as an open studio or ceramics retail outlet. The focus of the Mud Trail is to invite people to see artists at work in their studios, the majority of which are not usually open to the public. All the open studios on the Mud Trail have to be members of The Australian Ceramics Association and registered as an Open Studio on their site as well as with our own North Coast Mud Trail registration. This is not an opportunity to market ceramics at a retail location. Thank you for respecting the spirit of this event and all the work that goes into creating it.
