BUFFET #6 Call for Presentations / Invitation to Attend!

Thu 7th February 2019

6 – 8pm

The NewBridge Project, Carliol House Co-Work Space


Hey it’s us, BUFFET again! Back for our 6th course.
Everyone is invited to attend this entertaining show ‘n’ tell night.

This is also an official OPEN CALL for presentations inspired by / debunking / poking fun at / obsessing over whatever you’re into. We’d love to have you share your thing with us.

Maybe you have a weird tradition? A thesis on board games? A collection of collectables? A slide show of sarcasm? TELL US MORE. Presentations can be in any format, and ideally 10 mins or less. We always say, less is more!

Send an email to BUFFEEEETTTT@GMAIL.COM with a sentence or two about what you’d like to share — with any image(s) or link(s), as relevant — and we’ll add you to our menu for the evening if it tastes good!

Submit by Mon 4 February pleeeeeaase.



BUFFET is — An occasional gathering which invites its participants to both bring and share a ‘dish’ or anything else which may entertain + provoke. Each person brings something along, whilst also taking part in the other activities. Spectators welcome, participation encouraged.


BUFFET will be brought to you by Vicky Carr and Stina Poutinen.

Vicky is a graphic designer and educator based in Salford, at Islington Mill, where she shares the Engine House studio with 12 other independent creatives. Her practice mainly focuses on design for arts and culture clients, in particular designing books and other publications. Vicky is interested in creative networks and supporting structures, and what creatives get up to when they are not ‘at work’, both to support themselves and for fun.

Stina is a visual artist and occasional curator; her work explores questions of communication and relationships, the (mis)interpretation of objects, actions of spontaneous collaboration and the creation of social space through sculpture, installation and sometimes performance.

Stina and Vicky founded BUFFET together initially as an idea for an experimental summer school, which mutated auspiciously into something closer to a fun, cross-disciplinary show & tell, and potential testing ground for new projects and ideas.

Accessibility: NewBridge Newcastle has limited accessibility, this event will take place in the Co-Work space of NewBridge Newcastle. We regret, due to the age of our building and its change of use we do not have a functioning lift. Please contact us prior to visiting if you require additional information regarding access and facilities.
