The NewBridge Project : Gateshead

The NewBridge Project has studio space in Newcastle and Gateshead. NewBridge Studios offers space to artists at any stage of their career, working primarily within the field of visual art, with a desire to be part of a diverse and critically engaged community of creative practitioners. NewBridge Studios promotes exchange and support in an engaged and discursive community of artists. The shared workspace is a critical and collaborative environment that allows artists to discuss and develop new ideas and projects. NewBridge Studios continues to develop in response to the needs and interests of its members providing valuable resources and support to encourage an experimental and critical approach to contemporary art practice. Based in a former shop unit on Gateshead High Street, the space was originally home to Woolworths and later Poundland. The studios are based over 600m2 on the ground floor of the building. Gateshead High Street is equipped with studio space, co-work and event space and is home to NewBridge Gallery Space, a gallery and project space with a programme of contemporary exhibitions & commissions and The Collective Studio – a graduate development programme in partnership with Newcastle University. NewBridge Studio Members will benefit from: • A new support network from which to cultivate further opportunities and develop work. We 
are committed to NewBridge Studios remaining a discursive and productive working 
environment • The opportunity to be a part of an exciting and vibrant community of visual artists • Affordable 24hour access studio space • The opportunity to help shape NewBridge’s programme and future direction through our artist committees and steering groups • Access to our pioneering artist development programme, Practice makes Practice, offering opportunities, training and mentoring • A range of facilities at The NewBridge Project including bookable project space, production and making space, co-work & meeting space, social space, darkroom and Film Lab.
