We're now taking bookings for the Summer term. Click on the Summer Courses link above for more details.
We have two new exhibitions during January and February. "A Walk on the Wild Side" is an exhibition by four local fabric artists inspired by the natural world. "Renditions in Rags" by Sue Angus shows the world of traditional rugging in a contemporary context. You can meet Sue on Friday 22nd January from 5pm to 8pm (refreshments provided).
What We Do
Our Mission Statement: The Bridge provides a vibrant community led venue to support artists and encourage visual arts involvement for Darlington. Many artists who had a presence at the Arts Centre can now be found at the Bridge. It is also the home of other arts-based organisations.
Centre for Visual Arts
Opening hours are Monday to Friday 9am to 9pm and Saturdays 9am to 5pm.
There are free car parking spaces in and around the Bridge and it is fully accessible. It is about a fifteen minute walk from the centre of town and a number of Arriva buses stop outside: 11, 12A, 13A, 13B and 14 (information provided by Arriva, June 2012).
Openart Studio is a social prescription project focussing on enhancing mental health and wellbeing. It's a great place to get involved, learn something new, make friends and have fun. Professional artists are on hand at all times to help with your artistic interests. For more details, see the form here
