The Shed at Gateshead in North East England is an innovative project by a local authority to regenerate the town centre by providing rent-free, temporary workspace to artists and creative practitioners.
Developed with design guru Wayne Hemingway The Shed was transformed from an empty furniture shop. It is the pilot project for Gateshead Council’s Starter for Ten initiative.
The Project has two key aims: to address the demand for creative workspace in Gateshead, and to revitalise the High Street South area of Gateshead town centre. As the first Starter for Ten project, The Shed is a vital piece of research which will inform Gateshead’s long-term strategy for supporting the development of sustainable, creative workspace.
