Exhibition continues: 29 September – 27 October
Members of The Collective Studio 17-18, The NewBridge Project’s graduate and early-career artist development programme, present their work in this group exhibition, metres away from the space in which they resided for the past year.

Brought together by the opportunity for space to create, people to create with and context to respond to, the Collective Studio provided a malleable, participant-led experience in which the group of artists, creatives, writers and makers could explore the potential of their practice post-higher education in new, open and collaborative ways.

Halfway to Somewhere features work spanning sculpture, installation, video, photography, performance, role-playing games, furniture, and subject matter from topophilia to haunted rockeries.

Following group shows at Goldtapped and 36 Lime Street, this is the third in a series of exhibitions that The Collective Studio have presented together during the last year. It marks the end of their time on the programme and the point at which they take their next steps, as they make way for a new group of participants and a new iteration of the ever-evolving Collective Studio.

Exhibition open 29 September – 27 October 2018

The show is open Wed – Fri, 10am – 6pm
The show will be open on the following weekend dates: Sat 29 & Sun 30 September / Saturday 27 October as part of Gateshead Open Studios.

About the Collective Studio

The Collective Studio is a graduate development programme, supporting graduates from September 2017 – September 2018. The Collective Studio is a collaboration between Newcastle University’s Institute for Creative Arts Practice (NICAP) and The NewBridge Project.

The Collective Studio supports the development of creative talent in the North East region and equip practitioners with the necessary skills to manage their creative practice, bridging the gap between University, studio-based practice, the gallery and the workplace.

The Collective Studio provides early-career artists and creatives with the chance to be part of a vibrant and supportive community, shape their own programme of training and development events and opportunities for exhibiting and showcasing their work.

The Collective Studio follows an educational philosophy that advocates learner-chosen activities as a primary means for learning, preparing individuals for an uncertain and rapidly changing future.
