Art Crawl w/ Incursions and The Newcastle and Gateshead Art Map

Sat 18th December 2021 Walk: 1-4pm (this event is now walk only) Meet outside Laing Art Gallery for the walk. Ending in the Ouseburn

Using the Newcastle and Gateshead Art Map as a guide, Incursions will lead a walk around a selection of the art, cultural and community initiatives of Newcastle.

This roughly three hour walk will include contributions from representatives of different organisations featured on the Art Map as well as insights into Incursions’ psychogeographic practice, exploring how walking and talking builds solidarity with and in the city.

Tying these venues and initiatives together through a walk is an attempt to counter-map the city against its regenerative and capitalist flows, as we carve out and celebrate new routes and narratives for Newcastle. 

We will no longer be convening afterwards for dinner.

The walk is free to attend and people who aren’t members of NewBridge are especially welcome.

We will meet outside the Laing Gallery at 1pm. All welcome for some or all of the crawl, or for chat after. The walk will now culminate in the Ouseburn.


Contact us with any questions or queries on or @_incursions on instagram.


There will be no big NewBridge Christmas Party this year, so this’ll be the last event of 2021 and a chance to spread festive cheer!

Incursions is a project by Archie Smith and Kitty McKay based in Newcastle-upon-Tyne. Part walking event, part radio project, part archive, Incursions hosts weekly walking forums for anyone to attend, building a collective conversation around space and place, memory and friendship in and around the city. 

The Newcastle and Gateshead Art Map highlights venues and initiatives operating in the city and Incursions have devised a route linking up as many of the region’s creative and community projects, through the underbellies and side streets of the city, tracing the spaces where unaccounted for encounters can occur.


The walk will be quite long (c. three hours) and slow, and will feature hills, steps and other inaccessible features.

Free and open to all
