PODspace presents Transit Town

Transit Town is the first in a series of exhibitions that will be popping up around Newcastle this year under the PODspace banner. Transit Town is a photo media exhibition that explores Newcastle’s history and role as a port – a stopping off point for industry, travellers and students.

Curated by Nicole Chaffey and Alison Smith, and featuring work by Chris Byrnes, Liam Madsen, James Murphy, Adam Sandford, Dylan Smyth and Clare Weeks.

Where: The iconic Station Masters Cottage, Nobby’s Lighthouse, Newcastle. A ten minute walk from Nobby’s Beach, along the Breakwall.

When: Sundays 13th and 20th July.

Time: 10am-4pm.

Opening/Artist Talk: Sunday 13th July, 2-3pm.

Cost: Free. All welcome.

Parking: The nearest parking is at Nobby’s Beach. From there it’s a ten minute walk along the Breakwall and up the path to the Lighthouse.

Public transport: The nearest train station is Newcastle. The nearest buses stop on Scott St, near Newcastle train station. From there it’s about a thirty minute walk.
