Grainger Market ‘pop-up’ artist opportunities

Newcastle City Council

Newcastle City Council Arts Team in partnership with Grainger Market will hold free, inclusive family craft activities in the market this December, and want to hear from interested artists or arts organisations that can provide family art and craft activities, suitable for all ages and abilities.

The activities will run every Saturday and Sunday from Saturday 2 December to Saturday 23 December 2023, 11am – 4pm.

Artists can gain access to the space from 9.30am and get out from 4pm. The likely location in the market will be the Arcade space. Tables / chairs can be provided.

If this is of interest and you have availability on one or two of the weekends, then please respond to Alison Flanagan Wood with the following information by 31 October 2023:

  • What winter craft activity/activities would you like to deliver?
  • Which dates are you available?
  • Can you give an estimated materials budget for delivery based on 50 participants?
  • Please let us know any access needs.
  • Is there any other information you need?

All artists booked will need to hold a valid DBS check and public liability insurance, and complete a risk assessment for their individual workshop in advance.
