Women Artists of the North East Library

LAUNCHED 12th OCTOBER 2017 and is normally hosted in The Northern Charter Project Space

Initiated by Holly Argent & Rene McBrearty

If you would like to know more, arrange a visit to the library or sign up to the mailing list, please get in touch through our email: womenartistsnelibrary@gmail.com

We have events and projects we would love you to attend at The Northern Charter and elsewhere, to keep updated please join our Facebook Page.

By bringing together different types of material, including: books, art, photographs, letters, oral histories and music, we will form a usable resource that contributes to the history of women artists working in the region.

We are really excited to hear about as many women artists associated with the North East regardless of formal training, age, stage of career etc. During this research residency, we will be asking, what it could mean to have a regional library of only women artists? How might the community want to use it, and could this have the potential to form part of a collective memory?

The Northern Charter will host the library and act as a meeting place to share information, present findings and host events in collaboration with artists and local groups. A rolling programme will be shaped by our research findings and conversations along the way.

We really hope this project can be built collaboratively from stories and local knowledge of Women Artists’ presence in the North East.

Please share this with anyone you think would be interested in the project.
