Description

Concrete Dreams: Brutalism and the North East

Listen to John Grundy, author and TV presenter talk about “Concrete Dreams: Brutalism and the North East”.
Visit this 1971 Brutalist office building, one of the few remaining in Newcastle and spend some time with the buildings' residents.

The formal offices have long gone, so touring each floor of Commercial Union House you will see seven floors transformed into workspace for practitioners from various small and medium-sized enterprises and creative practitioners – including visual artists, performers, makers, illustrators, inventors, filmmakers, writers, designers and digital artists – alongside disability art projects and lecture rooms dedicated to hosting lifelong learning groups.

Talk at 14.00 hrs
