Monkfish Productions is an arts organisation that works across all art forms and with a wide range of artists and communities. We are especially excited about working with artists in non-arts spaces to make site-specific and site responsive work. We do this by working with communities connected to any place or space we work in. We are also interested in working with people to unlock their creative and artistic potential.
PITCH Gateshead Sept 2018 - March 2019
PITCH is a site-responsive opportunity for artists to make new work in non-arts spaces. Over the next few months our two artists in residence will be making new work in response to two spaces in Gateshead and in partnership with our community curators!
First up is our residency at Cumbric, Coatsworth Road in Bensham led by artist in residence Sophie Lisa Beresford .
Sophie is a multidisciplinary artist and Journal Culture Award Winner 2017. She will be based at Cumbric over the next couple of months leading on all things creative and crafty and culminating in new work. Watch this space for more info...
