A delightful announcement

I am utterly delighted to announce that I have been awarded a Graduate Studio Membership at The NewBridge Project.

"The NewBridge Project has always been committed to supporting recent graduates and early career artists; set up 6 years ago by two Newcastle University Fine Art graduates to create affordable workspace, develop artistic talent, provide professional development and exhibition opportunities and create a supportive network of visual artists."

As a Graduate Studio Member of The NewBridge Project I will have a free studio space for 6 months.

There are also a number of other benefits such as:

– Free access to Practice Makes Practice events

– Members only opportunities, such as residencies, exhibitions, exchanges and field trips

– Opportunities to input and shape the Practice Makes Practice programme

– An artist profile page on the NewBridge Studios website

– Access to the co-workspace in NewBridge Studios

– Access to the woodwork shop and darkroom in NewBridge Studios

As part of the graduate programme, I will have one-to-one meetings with an artist mentor on a monthly basis to offer guidance and advice, with the option of a group discussion afterwards. Workshops are also part of the programme which is something all members will shape together.

I'm looking forward to settling into my new studio and mixing more with the wonderful community that is The NewBridge Project!
