There’s less than two weeks to go till the deadline for Great Exhibition of the North Creative Commissions Callout.

The callout is one of the ways in which they are identifying high impact, memorable experiences and content which will bring three walking routes to life celebrating Northern arts, culture, design and innovation at key locations, and the spaces in between, across NewcastleGateshead.

They want to hear from performers, visual artists, architects, musicians, scientists, engineers, inventors, writers, creatives, thinkers, designers and digital makers – all with creative vision – who can respond to the ideas of the Great Exhibition and deliver an outstanding idea to help create a memorable experience which draws on and celebrates the North.

For those wishing to submit a proposal, but are seeking potential collaborators to do so, they have created a Facebook Group to enable you to make connections. They hope this group will provide a valuable forum for those looking to make connections and broker collaborations in order to develop ideas and help realise proposals.

If you’ve any questions, please email for the attention of Laura Hunter and they will respond.

All submissions must be received by noon 22 May 2017.
