Located in the heart of the town, 22 Marygate is a retail unit nestled beside the Town Hall.
Thank you to Edwin Thompson for allowing us the use of their spaces for exhibition venues.
The Burr is a new social space, screening library and discussion series named after the local Northumbrian language. Each day we’ll gather to collectively explore different topics with film and with guests. Come along for a giff-gaff!
Artist Debbie Bower (Foundation Press) hosts a drop-in workshop from 12:00 – 17:00 that asks us to envision a new film, and create a poster for it in response to the issues that are important to us.
Drop in between 12:00 – 17:00 and respond to material in The Burr’s film library selected by artist Kate Liston. Use prompts devised to uncover new meaning in films and artefacts relating to the region’s historic archives of mining, and strategies Kate uses in her new film project Sinkhole.
Drop in between 12:00 – 17:0, where artist Sam Stokes will be in residence DIY perfect binding artist’s books and zines.
Sam will be collating and binding test-copies of artist’s books especially for the 19th edition of Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival.
Drop in and watch a tactful and creative artist bookmaker at work.
