About

How might we continue to inhabit a damaged planet? 

How can we learn collectively from nature’s methods of survival and transformation?

Habit, Ability! is an exhibition with events exploring ways to learn from and ‘be in’ nature. Come to The Newbridge Project, Shieldfield, Newcastle to see survival strategies found in landscapes that are considered uninhabitable by humans. 

Seeing survival in these places through long and continuous engagement is a strategy against the common attitude to conquer and extract from nature.

Habit, Ability! begins by looking at Intertidal mud flats, peat bogs, the arctic circle, and the ocean. For humans, encountering these landscapes is challenging. Some of these places are protected by legislation - prohibiting or limiting human access for their preservation, or they are protected areas of scientific study. 

The exhibition then turns to look at NewBridge and its new home in Shieldfield, Newcastle, having moved in 2021. Works in the exhibition assess NewBridge and its the environmental impact of the organisation on its surrounding spaces and at large.
