Northumbria University Illustration Exhibition


  • Globe Gallery 47 Pilgrim Street Newcastle upon Tyne, England, NE1 6QE United Kingdom (map)

In September 2017, Rape Crisis Tyneside and Northumberland (RCTN), in collaboration with the illustration pathway on BA(Hons) Graphic Design degree at Northumbria University, challenged 2ndyear illustration students to come up with designs for new saleable merchandise to help the North-East charity towards its ambitious target of raising ¬£40,000 in its 40thanniversary year.

 RCTN set the illustration students three key words to interpret into the merchandise; three important words that most women use to describe how RCTN makes them feel after their counselling‚Ķ HOPE, SOLIDARITY, and LIBERATION.

 Entitled RESPONSE: the exhibition of work by the students opens this Friday (12 October) at the Globe Gallery on Pilgrim Street, Newcastle, running until Saturday 20 October, with an evening reception on Thursday 18 October between 5pm and 8pm.
