ABOUT THE PROJECT
‘Mapping Gateshead’ was a five-month project that surveyed and critically re-imagined creative and cultural activity in Gateshead through three interactive online workshops.
The project brought together a variety of creative practitioners 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.
Through a series of three interactive workshops, the project explored the fabric of cultural activity in Gateshead and resulted in three maps of Past, Present and Future Gateshead designed by local artist Grace Brennan.
The three workshops in combination provided opportunities to share knowledge; identify areas in need of targeted support, develop and strengthen creative networks and, importantly, advocate for creative activity in the borough.
