About BALTIC 39

BALTIC 39 is a vibrant community of practising artists, academics and researchers located on High Bridge in the heart of Newcastle upon Tyne.

Please note that due to technical issues with our lifts, BALTIC 39 currently has no step free access. We are working as quickly as possible to resolve this issue and restore lift access to the building and the current Shape Arts exhibition in the Project Space on Level 4. We apologise for this inconvenience.

This cultural hub for contemporary art practice and research opened in April 2012 as a unique collaborative venture between Newcastle City Council, Arts Council England, BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art and Northumbria University.

The former Ward’s printing warehouse and distinctive Grade II listed building at 39 High Bridge Street is home to the Project Space – a stunning top-floor gallery, 33 artists’ studios and the BxNU Institute of Contemporary Art.
