This call is open to all Artists and Makers: painters, printmakers, photographers, textile artists, ceramicists, jewellers, composers, poets, new media artists to exhibit and showcase their works. 

Granton:hub will make available the cafe and walls in the main exhibition room (the Sphynx) free of charge. Artists will be charged a commision of 20% for every piece sold. 

Artists and makers  will be able to block book weekly slots (from Thursday am to Wednesday pm), for multiple weeks, on a first come-first served basis.
