Research Environment

The MFA at Northumbria is served by well-established research facilities spread between BALTIC 39 in the centre of the City and the main City Campus of Northumbria University 10 minutes’ walk away. Across these sites we endeavour to create a research environment that is inclusive of cross-disciplinary enquiry, yet, also facilitates the demands of focused specialized study: PSN (Paper Studio Northumbria) and CSN (Colour Studio Northumbria) are both examples of internationally focussed initiatives led and mentored by specialist staff in these fields through regular discussions with students and symposia organised by Gallery North. Excellent technical and library facilities also serve to underpin students’ needs.

On a weekly basis, the postgraduate community of MFA, MRes, MA Art & Education, Graduate Fellows and practice-led PhD students can engage collectively in the colloquium conversations organised within the studio environments; the momentum and content of these conversations are tailored to the experimental open nature of the studio environment and driven by student’s own investigative processes. Additionally, there are regular unique events created through the BxNU partnership which facilitates extended dialogues with BALTIC staff as well as with visiting artists, curators and researchers.
