Northumbria University and BALTIC 39 offers students an opportunity to work and learn within this vibrant and unique creative environment which offers exceptional, purpose-built studio space for Northumbria’s Post Graduate community and a rotating selection of Northumbria’s Undergraduates. Independent studio holders and BALTIC’s stunning 300sq m, top floor project space, occupy the rest of the building. A programme of talks and BALTIC Socials are held in the galleries, in addition to events focusing on interdisciplinary, collaborative practice which are developed jointly with BALTIC Professor, Christine Borland. BALTIC 39 will enable the University to double its postgraduate student capacity in the short-term, with a view for significant growth in the future.
“The University's position in the heart of the city’s flourishing cultural quarter further advances our relationships with BALTIC and the City Council and will raise the profile of contemporary arts in the North East on a national and international scale.
