This year we look at the future of theatres, cinemas, music scenes and other performing art-based venues in the Newcastle city centres. From the project building, architecture will not be the end goal, but rather a means through which to question the present and to build the future, addressing much broader themes such as societal and urban resilience, alternative development, emotional resonance, symbolism, identity and the economic, ethical, social and spatial values of cultural or urban practices in 2020.
We welcome proposals act as indicators of future trends in a manner arguably far more sensitive than any political governance. Hope this can be attributed to the future synergy and symbiosis between cultural venues & the audience, urban centre & its inhabitants, quotidian activities & social interaction.
