BALTIC 39 is a new cultural hub for contemporary art located on High Bridge in the heart of Newcastle upon Tyne. This exciting venture is a collaboration between funders Newcastle City Council and Arts Council England and new operating partners, BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art and Northumbria University.
The conversion of the former Ward’s printing warehouse and Grade II listed building at 39 High Bridge Street is home to a vibrant community of practising artists. The building houses a new public gallery programmed by BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, 32 artists’ studios and a new home for fine art students from Northumbria University’s Department of Art and Social Sciences.
The building brings together opportunities for training, creativity and exhibitions, offering a unique centre of artistic excellence, development and experimentation. It acts as a magnet to draw artists from across the world for teaching, residencies and exhibitions. It is this distinct and unparalleled range of services and opportunities which makes BALTIC 39 such an exciting addition to the region’s rich cultural offer.
BALTIC 39 is supported by Newcastle City Council and Arts Council England in partnership with BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art and Northumbria University.
The redevelopment project of 39 High Bridge was funded by: European Regional Development Fund, Arts Council England, Tyne and Wear Partnership via Single Programme Funding from ONE North East, Northern Rock Foundation, The Sir James Knott Trust, The Barbour Trust, Newcastle City Council.
