Tyne & Wear Music / Youth Collectivism from the 1980s and beyond…

Thu – Sat, 12 – 5pm

Opening event 18 November, 4 – 7pm

Newcastle Contemporary Art

Exploring the legacy of Tyne and Wear Youth Music Collectives that started in the 1980s to identify engagement methods that can inform current and future practice.

The exhibition features archival material from DIY music collectives and venues The Garage (Newcastle), The Station (Gateshead) and The Bunker (Sunderland) that grew out of the disenchantment of rapid de-industrialisation of the region, to create a space to explore the impact these collectives had on people’s lives as part of our living cultural history.
