There will be a presentation about the Centre’s diverse arts programs and we will take an accessible tour of some of the studios of practicing visual artists. We are also hosting an artist panel discussion with some of the artists showing their work as part of the PODspace ‘Identity’ exhibition at the Newcastle Art Space. Artists will discuss what support they need to develop their practice.

‘Identity’ is the first in a series of PODspace pop up exhibitions during 2015.
