New projects start in SE Northumberland

We are delighted to have received an award from Esmée Fairbairn Foundation for a two year project working with young people across South East Northumberland, Newcastle and Middlesbrough.

This new project connects to both our CORNERS and Homelands programmes, linking artists and communities across the region to explore home, belonging, displacement and local democracy.

We are engaging young people as community story-tellers and using journalistic tools to record and share untold stories from local people within their areas, working alongside artists.

Through the project we are generating debate around cultural difference with diverse groups of young people, which is challenging and necessary.  We want this debate to be accessible and visible – through the creation of work for public display and through our digital platform CORNERS Live

This month we begin creative sessions with young adults from Silx Teen Bar in Blyth and NDAS (Northumberland Domestic Abuse Service).  Work created will be showcased alongside our CORNERS event this May 9-22nd.

Our colleagues from bait are supporting this work.
