Carry the Arts

Fancy something to show your love for the Nelson Arts Festival? We've teamed up with local sustainability warriors THE GREEN COLLECTIVE to create our amazing Carry the Arts bags from our clocktower banner. These are big and sturdy enough to carry all your arts supplies and everyday must haves - and even better, each one is absolutely unique!

We can post your bag to you, or invite you to come visit our office to choose and pick up. Get in touch!
