Mapping the future for the Tyne Catchment

Saturday 26 November, 1pm

Saturday 26 November, 1pm

£5* (£3 concessions), booking essential

Join us for a journey along the River Tyne with guest speakers including the Tyne River Trust, ending with a warming bowl of soup at The Cricketer's Pub. Let us imagine together the Tyne of our dreams.

This event has been conceived in response to Carolina Caycedo’s new drawing Memories of the Tyne Catchment (2022), which presents multiple perspectives and reference points of the River Tyne across the years, including vignettes of current sites, ecosystems, historical events, and tales.

Organised in collaboration with Incursions, this walk will start at Baltic with a talk by Tyne Rivers Trust, and take us along the river to culminate with a moment of sharing and warm soup at The Cricketers pub.

*Soup included in the cost of ticket.

Incursions

Incursions is a collaborative walking project based in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, facilitated by Archie Smith and Kitty McKay. Through practices of psychogeography, social engagement, collective research, mapping and friendship, they work to shift dominant neoliberal narratives of space and place, co-authoring ‘counter-narratives’ for how we inhabit civic worlds and build active solidarities.

Their weekly ‘walking forums’ in the North East, drawing on social histories, pop cultures and personal experiences, form part of a broader project that utilises radio and sound production, archival techniques and social cooking and eating as both research and practice methods.

Tyne Rivers Trust

Created in 2004 to mitigate the effect of the construction of the second Tyne Tunnel on the river’s ecosystem, the Trust has established itself as the only environmental charity dedicated to looking after the Tyne Rivers. The work that we do is vital to tackle the effects of climate change and support the wildlife and landscape of the Tyne rivers. We want a better river, a better region and a better life for all.
