PODspace is an exhibition and education program managed on a voluntary basis by a group of emerging curators and artists.

PODspace stopped operating as a traditional gallery at the end of 2012, before experimenting with pop up exhibitions in 2013. During 2014 PODspace will again retain the pop up exhibition format, working with partners to activate spaces around Newcastle.

manifestations which occur within individual morals, natural selection,
surroundings and dwellings. This conglomeration of traditions, ideas,
fantasies and choices coalesce overtime. In the meantime the personality
awaits, before it reveals its other self.
