NewcastleGateshead Initiative announces an open call for proposals for the

Great Exhibition of the North.

The Great Exhibition will celebrate the North of England’s great art and culture, design and innovation as never before; it will tell ‘The Story of the North’ in powerful and unforgettable ways to engage and inspire a new generation and to reveal and forge pride in the role that the North plays in shaping the world today and in the future

The call seeks 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 once in a lifetime experience which draws from and celebrates the North.
