Organised in partnership with the an Assembly Programme, this event brought together some of the emerging artist-led groups and projects working in the North East. Introduced to who they are and what they do, the event created a snapshot of this often- fleeting activity and reflect on how these groups shape the cultural identity of the region. Speakers included; Double Yolk, The House of Blah Blah, i o u a e, MILK and Slugtown.

Framing these presentations was an introduction by Charlotte Gregory, Director of The NewBridge Project, who talked about how the project, which has been running for seven years, retained an artist-led focus as it continues to expand
and develop its programme and activity; and Kevin Hunt, artist and a former director of The Royal Standard, Liverpool. He talked about the ARTIST-LED HOT 100 (version ii), a new publication for a-n that draws together some of the most exciting emerging artist groups, curatorial projects, content publishers and independent exhibiting spaces operating in the UK right now.

The event was part of an Assembly Programme ( ) that took place between May and June across five UK destinations; Margate, Liverpool, Bristol, Newcastle and Leeds.
