The Nastiest party on earth- volunteers needed!!


Nasty Women North East are co-ordinating an International Nasty Women Art Prize. The first showcase exhibition and announcement of the shortlisted artists will be in Newcastle at PRAXIS Gallery, Ampersand Inventions, on Thurs June 21st, 2018


We are looking for willing Nasties to help out with a variety of things!! We want the exhibition to be a huge party and complete celebration of all things Nasty and of the general fabness of North East culture.

The prize is raising money for Planned Parenthood an amazing women’s health charity that works in the USA and globally so all profits from the night will go to them.

If you are free and fancy lending a hand please take a little look at the info below and give us a shout (via email / join the relevant Facebook group (see below).

Please note- it has become a bit of a Nasty tradition for us all to wear our favourite (often most crackers) outfits for Nasty parties. So if you would like to please feel free to join us in this…

You can see some pics of previous parties (and outfits!): HERE
