Have you ever wondered how artists begin their creative process?

Or do you have a creative idea for a new artistic project that you want to share and talk over in a conversation with someone else? Or are you simply interested in meeting someone for a walk and talk and letting a creative conversation flow? If so, we invite you to come along for a one-to-one walk and conversation with an artist. 


How it works

Book a timeslot that works for you, and please outline any access requirements in advance. On the day, come along to The Shipley Art Gallery (look for The Saltwell Park Gallery inside) at your designated time where you will be greeted by one of the participating artists. They will suggest a route for you to take for a walk together, and open the conversation. Each Creative Exchange will last between 30 - 45 minutes.

This event is supported by Gateshead Council Arts Emerald Explorers
