Eclipse's Slate: Black · Arts · World is an international movement in the North of England that supports thousands of Black* Independent Artists by increasing access to local, national and international networks.

For the past three years, Eclipse has been supporting artists of colour across the north of England. Artists are more connected, and expectations are higher but if our work is to continue, we need to find out what Slate support might look like going forward. Join us for a Slate Social in association with Gateway Studio Project and help us to create a vision for the future that supports artists of colour in the North East.

Slate Social is a place to meet other artists of colour. Whatever art form you're working in, whether you're starting out or an old hand, whether you’re new to Slate or you’ve been with us from the start, this space is for you!

Refreshments will be provided.
