About: The Art Licks Trilogy

For 2020, Art Licks are carrying out a new project for its printed magazine: producing three issues from different cities across the country, starting with Newcastle. This trilogy of Art Licks magazine aims to explore the varying practices and artist communities across the country: their entrepreneurial methods of collaboration, structures of support, adventurous programming and tactics for sustainability. Based from Newcastle, Birmingham, and Bristol; with host partners The NewBridge Project, Recent Activity, and east bristol contemporary.

To begin the project, Art Licks’ Director Holly Willats is currently in residence at The NewBridge Project for four weeks to research potential content for the magazine in partnership with the NewBridge team. Rebecca Huggan, director of The NewBridge Project, will also guest co-edit the magazine. The magazine’s focus and content will be framed by conversations sparked during this research period.
