Our Time

About

Inspired by Freedom City 2017, Team Juice kicks off the festival with an after-hours night at Great North Museum: Hancock. A party full of music, performances, installations and workshops, celebrating how young people can take inspiration from the past and present to shape the future.

The OUR TIME line up brings together some of the most exciting emerging artistic talent from the region and beyond:

THE FREE UNDERGROUND PRESS

Enter the underground ‘free speech’ press room by artist Jade Blood and write a positive political manifesto or print a protest banner!

 

PROJECT XPRESSION
Curious Arts
will be #queeringthespace, celebrating and recognising the progress of the LGBTQ community with mini voguing sessions with professional dancers Patrick Ziza and Lerato Mncube culminating in multiple Juice Festival pop up Vogue Balls for everyone celebrating expression and liberty in a fabulous way.

Artist and Queer Creative, Grace Oni Smith “Grace the Face” will host an Xpression make up pop up tutorials championing that ‘Life is for dressing up not down’!

VON TUUR SALON
Enter the Von Tuur Salon for a once in a lifetime show. Put on your 1950s beauty salon hair dryer (or an Onderdomplaas if you’re wanting to get technical) and go on a multisensory experience through the decades with images, smells, sounds, tastes…..

NINETIES READ ALL ABOUT IT TUNNEL
Come inside artist Amy Lord’s Nineties Tunnel to watch an arthouse video celebrating 90’s Newcastle with a show and tell pop up full of 90’s props, costumes and music used to inspire the film.

I HAVE A DREAM LIBRARY
Visual artist Yvette Hawkins invites you into her sound and suitcase filled ‘Dream Library’. Grab a typewriter and type up your dream for the future and add it to the growing and evolving library of dreams.

YOUR SKIN
Step inside sound and data artist Ben Freeth’s installation and explore the science of your skin. You will see, hear and celebrate how we are all different and yet our skin is scientifically exactly the same.

​​LET FREEDOM RING
Skimstone Arts’ Young Artist Collective, inspired by Dr Martin Luther King Jr’s speech at Newcastle University in 1967, want you to explore what it means to be free, valued, recognised and respected. Photography and creative writing will be projected during live performances.

IT WAS ONCE A DREAM INTERACTIVE TRAIL
Grab your interactive trail map, designed by performance artist Zoe Murtagh and digital artist Casey Spence and explore Great North Museum at night. Encounter, hunt for and stumble on creative writing pieces written in response to civil rights movements past and present.

ARTMIX
An interactive film installation exploring equality that will be played through-out the evening

WORLD ARTISTS
Inspiring artwork created by a young artist collective from around the World, who now live in Gateshead, around the theme of freedom and what it means to them.

The line-up has been curated with some of the region’s young people including Team Juice.  Artist Casey Spence said: “I jumped at the chance to work with Team Juice on creating new artwork with inspiring and diverse young people; many have felt voiceless for a long time. I can't wait to share the brilliant ideas they have for changing the world around us.”

Curious Arts’ Artistic Director Phil Douglas said: “We are so excited so be a part of Our Time, a party night celebrating people! Our Vogue Ball pop ups will champion self-expression and play with stereotypes in a fabulous way”
