The Late Shows is a free late-night culture crawl taking place in Newcastle-Gateshead over the weekend of Friday 17 – Saturday 18 May 2019. During The Late Shows, museums, galleries, studio collectives and landmark historical buildings come together to offer visitors one-off events including hands-on workshops, behind-the-scenes tours, performances and parties. It’s all about encouraging people to do something cultural with their evening in celebration of the national event Museums at Night.

Newcastle Arts Centre will be part of this year Lateshows showing several events on Friday 17th May:

Explore art and music over three venues at the Arts Centre – Gallery, Black Swan and Jazz Café.

Take part in creative workshops that explore ideas, perception and imagination, led by experienced artists that run popular courses in the studios. Join in or just look and listen.

The Twisted Rose & Other Lives | An exhibition of paintings by Andy Farr exploring post-traumatic stress and the process of recovery at Newcastle Arts Centre Gallery.

Each painting is based on a personal account of the impact of trauma on someone’s life, and shows how people can grow during their recovery, as well as helping others to understand the feelings that trauma can create.

Andy Farr completed his MA at Coventry University in 2017. This is a touring exhibition supported by the Arts Council. Exhibition runs until 22 June.
