More than Meanwhile Spaces – Publication Launch Party

Wed 27th March 2019

4 – 6pm
‘Crit 1’, School of Architecture, Newcastle University (see directions and map below)

We are hosting a wrap up/publication launch party for More than Meanwhile Spaces.

More than Meanwhile Spaces is a collaborative project co-run by researchers at Newcastle University and The NewBridge Project. It consisted of three strategic conversations, hosted between October 2018 and January 2019, which brought together creative practitioners, local businesses, council members, academics and interested parties in order to foster a shared understanding of the challenges facing artist-run initiatives in the city.

Our hope was that through open and sustained conversation we would be able to develop viable, innovative business models for artist-run initiatives in the long-term which would help challenge the use of ‘meanwhile’ or short-term spaces for creative practitioners.

Each workshop was recorded and turned into a publication designed by Keano Anton, the final version of this will be launched on Wednesday 27 March in printed and digital form.

Please join us for the publication launch and following drinks reception.

Please click here for a Newcastle University campus map to help guide you all to the event location. We are hosting the party in the School of Architecture, which is the red brick building marked number 27 on the map (grid J4). For those of you who were at our last event, this is just up from the Boiler House where we hosted the third workshop.
To get to ‘Crit 1’ room, head through the main entrance to the School of Architecture, turn left after the reception and walk through the black double doors in front of you. There is a sign above a second set of doors for ‘Crit 1’. If you just walk through those second set of doors and take the door immediately on your right you’ll find yourself in Crit 1 room!
