Applications are now open for a new space specially built for short-run creative projects. Deadline for proposals is Monday 30 June, for projects taking place August – December 2014.
Until now, Renew Newcastle has concentrated on supporting projects which are planning to operate on an ongoing basis (until we receive 30 days notice to vacate). Now we are encouraging applications for creative projects to take place for a short-run, fixed period in The Project Space.
The Project Space is suitable for short run projects; works in development; installations; collaborative, experimental or interactive projects; showrooms; one-off exhibitions; or short programs of activity.
It is best suited for projects designed with an audience in mind – shop or gallery style activity rather than pure studio or office work. But we aren’t looking for straight up retail enterprise projects – this is a space for all the odd socks, those great ideas which haven’t quite fit into the Renew Newcastle parameters before.
It will be a great testing ground, good for trial projects, or for developing ideas ahead of getting a standalone Renew Newcastle space. Or a little window into those wild ideas which might not be quite right for an ongoing stint in the heart of the retail precinct, but would give us a glimpse of something special in Newcastle’s creative scenes. We are looking for interesting and unique projects which will add to the flavour of the Newcastle inner-city.
Pre-application Information Session: If you would like to ask questions about The Project Space, come to an Information Session held in the space at 12-1pm on Wednesday 21 May and Wednesday 11 June. There will be an opportunity for short one-on-one conversations to see if your Project Proposal is a good fit for The Project Space. Please register for the Information Session here.
NB. This is not a regular RN application round. It is not for office or studio proposals, and is not for straight up shop proposals. Please see General Application Information
