Set in a disused office block at the heart of the city, The NewBridge Project consists of an exhibition space, a bookshop café and over 80 artists’ studios. The artist-led community focuses on exploring new approaches to art practice and nurturing a strong community feel, with regular free exhibitions of artists’ work, events, talks, screenings, and discussion groups. The bookshop is worth a special mention, as some of its stock will not be found elsewhere.
