The NewBridge Project is an artist led studio and project space that makes use of empty business premises in Newcastle city centre. Currently situated in a 29,000sqft former office block, the project promotes exchange and support in an engaged and discursive community of over 65 artists. The shared workspace is a critical and collaborative environment that allows artists to discuss and develop new ideas and projects. The studios primarily act as a secure working environment but also as a social space by playing host to regular gigs and performances.
NewBridge Project Space provides a platform from which artists are able to curate, exhibit and explore new ways of working. Our vision is to initiate projects that examine and challenge artists’ practice with a focus on critique and experimentation. Alongside developing new work, we are interested in working with artists on projects that employ different modes of presentation and critique, be that commissioned writing, broadcast, talks, screenings or publications.
Studios at The NewBridge Project are subsidised and are therefore priced the same regardless of size (currently £15 p/w). There is usually a waiting list for studios, if you are an artist that requires studio space, or that has an idea for a project, please contact us via: firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
