An Exhibition of Newcastle's Built Heritage

Free Entry

Newcastle City Futures is a high-profile, multi-media exhibition and events series that features evocative imagery of Newcastle’s built heritage from the past, present and future!

Exploring change and renewal over the past 75 years the exhibition investigates why the city looks as it does today, reveals ‘unbuilt’ plans that could have changed the way we live, and focuses on the human stories built heritage can share. Inviting audiences to re-discover Newcastle’s rich architectural past, the exhibition also looks to the future, and will launch and debate key plans and frameworks that will shape Newcastle and its communities for the coming years.

Evening events series and family workshops

An event series including discussions, film screenings and activities, will also launch a ‘big city conversation’, jointly hosted by Newcastle University and the University’s partners, and aims to engage a number of communities in the city’s development. There will also be a number of family activities over the half term week and weekends.

Professor Mark Tewdwr-Jones, School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape, Newcastle University, Director, Newcastle City Futures

"The exhibition is supported by a comprehensive program of events, jointly hosted by Newcastle University and its partners.
