DRAWING will work with the Alison Flanagan Wood, Arts Development Officer at Newcastle City Council to support the allocation of an artist in residence within the Grainger Market, in Newcastle City Centre. This activity will be designed to target audiences that least engage currently and gain feedback on their views of the existing residency programme prior to the participatory workshop and afterwards. The residency programme aims to explore how art and culture might be relevant to people’s everyday lives. The use of drawing aims to foster these connections and engage more directly with these audiences (traders and consumers). The activity will happen in and around an empty shop unit which will provide a base for the residency. The ambition is to develop feedback for longer term engagement between DRAWING and Newcastle City Council, collaborating to engage with and develop new audiences.
