With regret, the 2020 BS9 Arts Trail has been postponed.


We wanted to do our bit to keep one another safe. We are planning to be back- full of vim and vigour. But for now you can follow us at @bs9arts on instagram to stay updated and catch up with what the

BS9 artists have been making in preparation.

2.Marketing information: exhibition name, opening time, location and artists' statement etc.  We deem this information as critical to share publicly to promote artists' work. If artists provide information that could be classed as personal but that is necessary to promote their work (e.g. their personal email or phone number for public to contact them about their work) then we publish it on our website.  Participating artists are advised to consider this when submitting their marketing information.


We use artist members' information to:


- keep you informed about news concerning the BS9 trail and local art-related events that we think you may find interesting;


- carry out our obligations arising from any agreements entered into between you and us;

- comply with legal and regulatory obligations; and for security.






We store data in two main repositories (Google Docs  and our webhosting solution).  Copies of the data may, at times, also be held on the personal devices of the Trail Organisers as relevant to the work in hand (eg preparation of the Trail Map/Guide or website).





Like many site operators, we collect information that your browser sends whenever you visit our Site ("Log Data"). This Log Data may include information such as your computer's Internet Protocol ("IP") address, browser type, browser version, the pages of our Site that you visit, the time and date of your visit, the time spent on those pages and other statistics. In addition, we may use third party services such as Google Analytics that collect, monitor and analyze this activity.





Consent for Data is deemed to have been given when a submission for Trail participation is received.  Although we generally use this data to promote the current Trail, we reserve the right to make it available via our website Archive and occasionally to use it to promote a future Trail across any of our channels.
