As of 9th April 2023, Side Gallery will close to the public due to critical funding cuts and the ‘cost of living crisis’.
For over 45 years, Side has been a dedicated home to documentary film and photography. Side’s mission is to be an agent for change through the commission, exhibition, and preservation of world-class visual stories that highlight social concerns and celebrate diverse lives & landscapes across the Northeast, UK, and the globe.
Now more than ever, we must protect this vital and freely accessible cultural resource so it can continue to provide an essential public platform for these important stories.
The Side team is doing everything possible to secure additional funding so that we can eventually re-open to the public. However, the future is uncertain, and Side now faces the possibility of permanent closure.
