BALTIC 39, a new cultural hub for contemporary art located on High Bridge in the heart of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, will open to the public on Friday 6 April 2012. This exciting venture is a collaboration between Newcastle City Council, Arts Council England, 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 will be home to a vibrant community of practising artists. The building will house a new public gallery programmed by BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, 33 artists’ studios and a new home for fine art students from Northumbria University’s Department of Art and Social Sciences. The building will bring together opportunities for training, creativity and exhibitions, offering a unique centre of artistic excellence, development and experimentation. It will act 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 comprises - BALTIC's project space gallery - BxNU Institute of Contemporary Art - BALTIC Professor - Northumbria University School of Arts & Social Sciences - Studios - affordable non-residential workspaces
