Connect Exchange Food + Social

Tue 9th May 2017

Co-Work Space, The NewBridge Project, Carliol House
6.30 – 8.30pm

You joined us for food and conversation at the re-launch of Practice Makes Practice in the co-work space in our old home, Carliol House.

The pot luck dinner was an opportunity to meet Verity Birt and Gary Zhexi Zhang, who were undertaking the Connect/Exchange Residency with Northern Film & Media, The NewBridge Project and BALTIC Centre For Contemporary Art.

Verity and Gary introduced their practice and the work that they have done whilst in Newcastle.

It was also a chance to hear more about the Practice Makes Practice programme, opportunities and the different ways to get involved in the future.

Connect/Exchange is a national residency scheme for UK-based artists with a screen-based practice. Conceived and developed by Northern Film & Media, artists are supported with the initial research & development of a new project via a two-part residency, together with associated professional networking and events.

We regret, due to the age of our building and its change of use we do not have a functioning lift.
