Create/Disrupt 2024

The NewBridge Project

Applications now open for Create/Disrupt, a development programme for aspiring artists and arts workers who have not been to university and live in the North East of England.

Create/Disrupt builds a community, offers professional support, free studio space and artist mentoring for those who have been historically marginalised from professional, creative opportunities.

It brings provides a creative community who co-create the activity and involves workshops, artist mentoring, field trips, exhibition opportunities and socials.

All art forms and creative interests are welcome.

When applying, please consider:

  • Your current creative/artistic interests (include examples of your work if you like);
  • Where you feel you are on your artistic or creative journey. It doesn’t matter where you feel you are and this won’t affect your application: you could give details of something new you want to explore;
  • What your creative hopes and aspirations are for the next 12 months and what you hope to gain from being a member of Create/Disrupt.
