Make a donation to the Women Artists of the North East Library to help us grow our collection and ensure it reflects the many perspectives and breadth of practices in North East.
If you are an artist or curator who identifies as a woman and you consider yourself to have an association with the North East, we want to hear from you.
If you are not an artist or curator we still want to hear from you. Maybe you know of an artist that you think we should know about, have carried out research in the region or have a personal collection we might be interested in. Please get in touch with us to talk about any potential donation.
We accept donations via POST or we can ARRANGE COLLECTION (if local to the North East).
To find out more about the sort of donations we are looking for, read more on the Donate page.
So… go through your studio shelves, the mess under your bed, the piles of exhibition hand outs and your own archive boxes. We look forward to hearing from you.
