CIRCA Projects is a non-profit arts organisation, active since 2009, that produces contemporary art exhibitions and events for audiences in the north east of England. We approach artists who want to take risks, developing new projects outside of the conventional gallery space and responding to the local context.

The public’s experience of a CIRCA project is unique – it cannot be experienced in the same way again elsewhere. This might be through an exhibition in a regeneration site which transforms over its duration (Space Release), a gig in the oldest social club in Newcastle (GIG) or a constructed pavilion which drives the viewer forward through a network of rooms filled with avatars (Benedict Drew: The Persuaders).

Through taking into account the people, places and histories that combine to produce the context for art, we aim to produce an experience of contemporary art that is different to how it is experienced elsewhere – stimulating new ways of thinking about how contemporary art is made and how it is shown. This approach in turn produces new audiences for contemporary art and new possibilities for what an art exhibition might be.
