More than Meanwhile Spaces: Workshop 3

Tue 15th January 2019

1 – 6pm (lunch included before, with drinks afterwards)
The Boiler House, Newcastle University

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 third workshop will look to the future, and take forward thoughts and ideas produced during Workshop 1 and 2.

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).

The second of three digital publications will be available before Workshop 3.
