Newcastle Arts Centre, with support from the Creative Central: NCL programme – funded by the North of Tyne Combined Authority and Newcastle City Council, announce their open call for artists to take part in an exhibition opportunity this autumn. 

The four artists selected will exhibit their artworks in the recently-refurbished Newcastle Arts Centre Gallery in an exhibition forming part of a six-month programme of events, exhibitions and skills development opportunities for emerging and established local artists. There is no given theme for this open call, but a theme for the show will be developed with the selected artists.

The selected artists will each receive support via one-to-one mentoring with an Artist Development Coordinator, as well as exhibition group planning, business skills and professional development support, technical skills support (for fabrication and installation of artworks) and promotional support (social media, printed advertisements and published press). Artists will also get a micro bursary of £1200 for time and materials, paid in instalments and limited access to a Makerspace to fabricate artworks.

If you are local and early in your career or are a more established artist living or working in Newcastle upon Tyne, and you’re interested in developing your artistic practice in an exhibition context then apply through Submissions deadline is Thursday 20th July. Paper application forms will be given upon request.
