Culture Northumberland exists to amplify the work of the Cultural and Heritage sector in Northumberland and support those who contribute to it.
This is a call out for information in order to better display (artist) studios and bookable workshop/ rehearsal space here in Northumberland as part of an online set of resources housed here on the Culture Northumberland website.
We have a wealth of artists, makers, theatre folks and writers working here in Northumberland.
Some of you have studios are open to the public, some have workshop space, some are closed and within private homes. Some of you sell online, others would like colleagues to work with.
We want to profile where there is already space to work and make and will be building a web page (subject to funding) with more detail and photos later this year.
We have put together this short listicle (for now) to show the breadth and diversity of makers, artists and opportunities of spaces here in Northumberland.
Here's a snap shot of the diversity of space we have in the county.
Please feel free to email us or fill in our google form if you would like to list your space;
Studios, spaces and more
