ABOUT THE PROJECT
‘Mapping Gateshead’ is a multidisciplinary, collaborative project that surveys and critically re-imagines creative and cultural activity in Gateshead.
The project brings together academics, policy makers, creative practitioners and local citizens to discuss their experiences of change and continuity in Gateshead’s cultural landscape.
‘Creative practice’ is a deliberately broad term intended to welcome a range of artistic backgrounds from leading architecture firms to community art projects and individual practitioners.
So far, we’ve held online mapping workshops, walking tours, and pop-up events providing opportunities to share knowledge; identify areas in need of targeted support, develop and strengthen creative networks and, importantly, advocate for continued creative activity in the borough.
