#AOTH2020 – Register your interest & help shape the event


Crikey – what a roller coaster 2020 has been! There is so much uncertainty in the arts right now – for our freelancers, businesses, projects, practises and venues – it’s difficult to know what to do. For precisely that reason, Team AOTH and our friends at the Cwtsh Community & Arts Centre are pleased to confirm Celf Ar Y Bryn Casnewydd / Art On The Hill Newport in 2020 is going ahead as planned.

>>> BUT <<<

It is clear to us already that this year’s event will look VERY different to that of previous years. Newport as we speak is beginning it’s second week of a local lock down due to an increase in COVID-19 cases in Gwent, which has led us to plan for a hard lock down / assume strict social distancing measures will be in place once AOTH takes place in November.



That being the case, NOW is the time for you to feed in and to share what you would like to do as part of #AOTH2020 this year, especially how you intend to go about it. It MUST be accessible to audience / visitors in one of the following ways:

  • Accessible online (via a website / social media / video conferencing software i.e. Zoom).
  • Viewable in an OUTSIDE space (a front garden or public park where 2m distancing is possible, street performances etc).
  • As a window display / shop frontage.
  • Large scale static installation that can be securely fixed in to position.

As in other years, there will be a registration fee to take part in this event, however you are welcome to charge audiences or viewers a ticket fee to watch your activity online. Concessionary rates are available but must be arranged with Team AOTH before your participation in the programme will be confirmed.

We are also looking for sponsors of this year’s event – if you or a local business would like to contribute in some way to #AOTH2020 please email the team at:

Arts on the Hill Newport is a weekend of art and creativity on the west side
of Newport featuring open houses, events and exhibitions. Artists can open
their homes to share their work or work with partner venues and
organisations to show in other places. There’s room for all art forms with
events over the weekend to be included on a printed trail map that will be
available from partner venues from mid November each year.
