Building a Studio Directory in Northumberland

Updated: Oct 24, 2023

We are delighted to be bringing you the first step in building a resource to support independent artists, makers and cultural freelancers in Northumberland.


Earlier in the year we did a call out for information on artist and other studio spaces and we are working behind the scenes to turn this into a web page with a clickable map.





Here is a snap shot of the information we were provided with where artists/ venues told us they could HIRE OUT studio space to you.


If you'd like to be added the list you need to (accurately) fill in the google form with all your details and send us an email.
To be taken off the list or make an update please email Claire or Beth at hello@culturenorthumberland.co.uk

We'll update info and make it more user friendly as we go.
