The NewBridge Project have invited Islington Mill to participate in Life in a Northern Town, a series of three exhibitions and a programme of events featuring work by upcoming and early-career artists living and working in the North of England. The programme has been developed in partnership with other artist-led spaces and studio collectives from Northern cities, celebrating the ambitious and experimental spirit of organisations with a grassroots, DIY ethos at the heart of what they do.

LIVE in a Northern Town celebrates and continues the Mill’s long-standing commitment to supporting a local music programme as well as collaboration between visual artists and musicians. The Mill will present a programme of LIVE events bringing musicians from across the North to Newcastle for two days and nights of special collaborations, workshops and performances.

For this project, Stina Puotinen, Studio & Events Manager at Islington Mill, has teamed up with longtime Mill resident Emma Thompson – of Fat Out music promotion – to select musicians to be paired with visual artists from the Mill’s network. Taking place between The Star and Shadow and The NewBridge Project, the two-day program highlights Islington Mill’s signature mix of music and visual arts, and will showcase musicians from Liverpool, Salford, Leeds and Newcastle.

 

This event is part of Life in a Northern Town, a series of exhibitions and a programme of events featuring work by emerging and early-career artists living and working in the North of England. It has been programmed in partnership with Assembly House (Leeds), Islington Mill (Manchester), Caustic Coastal (Manchester), Bloc Projects (Sheffield) and The Royal Standard (Liverpool). 

Life in a Northern Town is part of The Great Exhibition of the North 2018.
