We are holding an auction as part of our major fundraising drive towards the continuation and development of Globe in our new Newcastle City Centre premises. We have been at the forefront of contemporary art in the North East for more than seventeen years and have been an Arts Council RFO for the past six years but were unfortunately not awarded NPO status this year.
The auction aims to ensure we build on our unique offer to audiences and participants across the North East of England. We are pleased that we have already received donations in support of our organisation from artists including Douglas Gordon, Mike Nelson, Fiona Banner, Jane and Louise Wilson, Franko B, Mark Fairnington, Stefan Gec and many other artists.
We are therefore asking artists and arts organisations to donate an art work for our auction.
There will be a live auction on the evening of 2nd December 2011 that should make for an exciting event.
