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.
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.
