The concept of ‘home’ can be an undefinable, often transient, thing; many of us have several physical living spaces throughout our lifetimes, but equally have places to we feel at home – sometimes it’s where you lay your hat, sometimes it’s just the right place at the right time.

It’s a theme that NewBridge Project will be exploring over the course of the next two years, as they consider their fairly recent move to new premises in the residential area of Shieldfield, and ask the artists and audiences that engage with them to consider their ideas around ‘the home’.

As with everything NewBridge does, they’re keen for their programme to be participant and artist-led, so while exhibitions about artworks made within the home may be one focus, others could also include the ideas, realities and histories of housing, the migratory experience, domestic design, community and non-human dwellings.

To kick the winter exhibition off on Saturday 3rd December, they’ll be celebrating work made by local artists, makers and their own artist community, with all kinds of mediums represented from drawings and paintings, to photography, film and books, digital art, textiles, fashion, music and craft. The second part of their investigation will begin on Saturday 28th January and run until Saturday 25th February, comprising a programme of exhibitions, events, talks and workshops which explore The Home and what it means in their community and space in Shieldfield.

The Home runs at NewBridge Project, Newcastle from Saturday 3rd December-Saturday 25th February.
