Slate is Curious: The Long Table - Sat 6 Jul

Northern Stage, Newcastle
Sat 6 Jul
FREE booking required

After last year’s sold out event, Slate returns to Curious Festival with an artist-led debate that invites inspirational Black* LGBTQ+ artists based in the North to share their artistic practice, discuss the barriers that exist around creating new work and offer possible solutions. The Long Table is an open panel format where artists and audience members can 'take a seat at the table' and join the debate.

The provocation: How visible are you? Which spaces are you missing from?

Led by Eclipse, Slate is a three-year movement supporting Black artists in the North to work on a local, national and international level.

Following the debate, stick around for some delicious food and a chance to network with artists, producers and venue programmers before Curious Festival continues with Rent Party; an immersive show inspired by the 1920s Harlem Renaissance Rent Parties. Being Broke Never Looked So Fierce.

Featured artists to be announced.

FREE but booking is required, to book your place click here. 

During each Long Table we invite an inspirational artist or two to deliver a short presentation on their work. If you’d like to sit at the head of The Long Table, and you’re based in the North East, please send your biog/CV and a link to your work to This email address is being protected from spambots.

If you’re not shy when it comes to putting the arts world to rights, get in touch!

Fee: £150 + travel (& accommodation, if required)

*To Eclipse, Black includes anyone who is marginalized for their race or ethnicity.
