For Artists

Tyneside Cinema Archive Commissions

Deadline: 12 noon Friday 29 October 2021

To mark the 85th birthday of Tyneside Cinema in 2022, we are launching two new artist commissions inviting artists to respond to archive material held by the cinema, exploring the social and artistic history of the cinema.

Artists and artist collectives working in any medium will be given access to the material we hold relating to the cinema’s history and will be supported to make new work in response to it. The final work will be presented as part of a programme of birthday celebrations in February 2022.

The Tyneside Cinema Archive Commissions sit at the heart of a new project, launching in 2022, to develop our archive and will shape how we organise, understand and share our heritage.

Detailed information on the opportunity and the commissioning brief can be found here.

Fill the online application form before 12 noon on Friday 29 October 2021.

If you are unable to fill out an online form for any reason, get in touch and we’ll supply the form in an alternative format.

The Archive Commission is made possible thanks to funding from Arts Council England.
