Meeting Will Strong at The NewBridge Project

One of the first things I did when I moved to Newcastle was to meet with Will Strong, the co founder and co director of The NewBridge Project. He has worked with the organisation since it began in 2010 having graduated from Newcastle University. Will is an artist and curator who has shown work throughout the UK and internationally.
Will was incredibly generous with his time and gave me a tour of the studios, project spaces and gallery and gave me a broad overview of the art galleries and organisations in Newcastle. I would like to thank him for this, and congratulate him on his new role as Creative Economy Programme Manager at the British Council.

The NewBridge Project
Supporting artists to investigate and challenge the boundaries of contemporary art practice
The NewBridge Project is an artist-led community comprising of over 80 artist studios, an exhibition space and book shop based in a 29,000sqft former office block in Newcastle city centre.

The NewBridge Project was established in 2010 to provide 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.
The NewBridge Project Space provides artists with the opportunity to exhibit in a supportive space that promotes an experimental and critical approach to practice. The exhibition space is dedicated to exploring new and diverse contemporary art practice through a programme of regular exhibitions, screenings and events, supported by responsive talks, publications and broadcasts.
The NewBridge Project continues to develop in response to the needs and interests of its members.
