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.

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.

BALTIC 39 is also the studio base for Northumbria University’s Warwick Stafford and Woon Fellows, the winners of two generous annual prizes aimed at early and mid-career practitioners in Fine Art.

NewBridge Books, the only independent art bookshop in the North East, is located in BALTIC 39's shop front.
