On the 6-7th October the Windmill Hill/Victoria Park area of south Bristol will play host to the 6th Art on the Hill art trail. The event boasts over 90 artists and performers who are exhibiting their work and skills over the weekend. It provides an important and popular platform for the creative community in the area.
For the first time Art on the Hill has a mobile phone app for the event showcasing the artists and their work. It was developed by David Smith, and uses the Appfurnace authoring tool (www.appfurnace.com). Some of the artists kindly came forward to be interviewed, to give an added insight into their practice and themselves as artists. The App can be browsed at home, or using GPS technology acts as an automatic guide for exhibiting artists street by street as you travel the trail.
This walk works on Android and Apple iPhone platforms through the AppFurnace app. Instructions for downloading the app can be found on the Art on the Hill website:
