About Us:

Sanctuary Artspace is Gateshead's newest gallery housed in Gateshead's oldest building - St. Edmund's Chapel, a 13th Century working church on Gateshead High street.

Sanctuary Artspace is available to hire, providing artists with a platform for getting their work shown to a new audience and their voice heard in local culture. Please see our information for artists if you are interested in hiring the space.


We believe access to the arts is a brilliant thing for the local community. We aim to facilitate this by opening up St. Edmund's Chapel for artists to use. Keeping the church door open more often also means more people can experience a building very different to anything else on Gateshead High Street.
