Middlesbrough Art Week

We’re excited to be taking our film content to Middlesbrough Art Week for the first time, as part of our Nature Matters project.

The Art Week is a full week of free exhibitions, talks, workshops, performances, events and interventions across the city: it includes a programme of over 120 artists, and has grown to become one of the largest annual contemporary arts festivals in the North East. 

Started in 2017, it champions Middlesbrough’s heritage, industrial past, and creative scene, transforming the town centre into a creative hub, and has grown to become the largest annual contemporary arts festival in the North East. 

The theme of this year's programme is MEASURE, and considers the ways of thinking of past, present and future: from deep time to waiting time to no time. MEASURE is also the title of the exhibition taking place at the festival's hub, The Auxiliary Project, where we will be showing an edited film that explores how industry and nature live alongside each other in Middlesbrough along with a series of amazing artists' work. 

We will also be giving a talk exploring how you can get involved in the Nature Matters project, which you can catch on Sunday 1st October, 1-2pm in the main Auxiliary space led by Nature Matters Delivery Manager, Martha Cattell.

We’ll also be presenting a screening of our new Social Cinema progamme, on Saturday 7th October, 12-2pm at The Auxiliary Project. The screening will be followed by a Q & A with YFA and NEFA Archive Manager, Graham Relton, with free food available.
