We publish a printed art map for Newcastle & Gateshead. Produced for residents and visitors alike, the Newcastle & Gateshead Art Map features full mapping for visual arts organisations, alongside current listings for exhibitions. It is published every three months and distributed widely.

If you’re local, you can pick up maps in selected independent cafes, shops and cultural organisations across Newcastle, Gateshead and North Tyneside. If you can’t find a copy near you, or live elsewhere and would like a copy, get in touch and we’ll send one out to you.

Our website covers the whole region, but the printed map attracts audiences beyond its reach — including visitors to the North East.

Frequency
Winter: 1 January – 31 March
Spring: 1 April – 30 June
Summer: 1 July – 30 September
Autumn: 1 October – 31 December

Advertising
It’s cheap and effective to advertise in the art maps. Artwork deadlines are the 10th of the month preceding publication. You can supply print-ready artwork, or we can lay it out for you if you prefer. Please get in touch for rates.

Distribution
If you’d like us to distribute to your venue, or if you think you should be in the map but aren’t currently, please contact us.

Other maps
We also created a map for Middlesbrough and Redcar – the Boro Art Map – and published four editions between 2022-23 alongside its Tyneside counterpart. The map is currently on hold while we work with Middlesbrough Cultural Partnership to determine the best model for the future. You can download back issues below alongside those of the Newcastle & Gateshead Art Map.
