More than Meanwhile Spaces: Workshop 2

Mon 26th November 2018

1 – 5pm (lunch included!)
The NewBridge Project, Carliol House Co-Work Space

To book please email Katie Markham

More Than Meanwhile Spaces is a series of 3 conversations and events that aim to explore long-term models for creative practitioners in the city.

A new collaborative project between researchers at Newcastle University and The NewBridge Project, funded by ESRC IAA block funding, is to challenge the use of ‘meanwhile’ or short-term spaces for creative practitioners in Newcastle/Gateshead. The project will bring together an invited network of key stakeholders across a series of three strategic conversations in 2018/19, each focused on a different area of current and future practice and policy, both within Newcastle and abroad.

The project aims to move beyond current debates and to explore innovative, long-term possibilities and models for creative practice in the city of Newcastle. A freely available publication will follow each conversation, which will be designed to act as a toolkit for those wanting to host similar conversations in the future.

The second workshop will take forward thoughts and ideas produced during Workshop 1.

If you are interested in joining the conversation, please contact Dr Katie Markham on with a short statement about your interest in, the workshops (this is due to restricted space at the events).

Workshop 3 will take place on Tuesday 15 January, 1-6pm.
