Practice makes Practice - Residency, The NewBridge Project


We invite artists to apply for Practice makes Practice - Residency. This one-month residency opportunity will provide artists with time and space to reflect on their practice within an active and engaged community of artists at The NewBridge Project. The residency will instill a spirit of collaboration, collectivity and exchange to generate peer learning, critical conversation and social interaction.

Practice Makes Practice - Residency will provide artists with time to test out ideas, experiment, develop networks, research new works/projects and explore new aspects of their practice without any expectation to produce new work.

This residency forms part of Practice makes Practice, an artist development programme run by artists for artists based at The NewBridge Project. During the residency, we will invite the selected artist in residence to input into the wider Practice makes Practice programme through instigating events, workshops or talks informed by their practice, feeding into their professional development and that of our members. We will provide a small budget for travel and fees to support this.

Practice Makes Practice - Residency is open to artists practicing in any art form and will be based within NewBridge Studios – a community of over 100 artists in Newcastle upon Tyne and Gateshead. We welcome proposals from artists keen to get involved and engage with The NewBridge Project, its programme and its members.
