LOST or the Leichhardt Open Studio Trail is an event held in conjunction with Art Month each year in March.
During this time artists studios throughout the local area open their doors to the public. This is a rare opportunity to enter the personal creative realms of participating artists and take an exciting peek into many creative spaces.
LOST will be held over the weekend of the 8 and 9 March, 2014.
It's time to register for LOST 2014 - Leichhardt Open Studio Trail
Calling all artist, designers, craftspeople, and galleries. It's time to join together to celebrate our local government area's wealth of creatvity and creative venturing. This will be our third year of LOST, and with each year the event grows as we find new artists willing to open their doors into normally private worlds. If you don't have a studio that you don't feel is suitable for public access, there may be other ways to get involved. You could run an art class over the weekend, or consider approaching a cafe or local business to see if they are willing to hold an exhibition of your work? There are many different ways that we can activate our area during the LOST weekend. There is a space on the registration form for arts activation ideas, and if they are possible, we can work together to make them happen.
Registrations close on the 17 December, so please get the word out there to your fellow creatives.
You can also register by filling out the LOST 2014 Registration Form (DOC 42KB) and returning it to firstname.lastname@example.org

The LOST trail was held on Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 March, from 10-3.30.
This is your chance to see the wonderful array of creativity working behind normally closed doors.
For the second year LOST has invited artists, galleries and cultural venues to open their doors to the public. LOST will allow you to see a wide range of creative ventures.
This year we have expanded LOST to two days, so you will have an easier pace in getting to all those wonderful studios. One day simply isn't enough time to see all the studios that will be open in 2013. This year we have such an exciting mix of mediums, that visitors are guaranteed a varied and wide ranging experience. Visitors will have the opportunity to view street art, video, painting, sculpture, mixed media, stencil art, illustration, silk-screen printing, mosaics, glass art, ceramics, flute making and millenery. Over thirty artists studios and galleries in the area have joined the LOST trail so please spread the word to make sure everyone has an opportunity to join the creative tour.
