About Corners East Durham
Corners of Europe aims to draw threads between European communities through arts projects with a difference! The stories shared, and what is created, are passed on and told in another town or city. These stories are not only meaningful, but also have the power to connect countries as well as people.
Corners shows that we all share similar hopes, challenges and dreams; from politics to social welfare, financial concerns to getting the chance to be creative.
“I think the project will be a springboard for us here to be more creative… we can see what can be achieved” – Alison Paterson, Blackhall Community Centre Manager.
Our recent project Corners East Durham involved local and European artists working with communities in Horden, Shotton and Blackhall.
During the last weekend of September, celebratory events for the individual projects took place in each village. The final events included a gentle walking tour of Shotton’s hidden treasures, playing and sharing games in Horden and a live radio broadcast about sharing local memories and thoughts of Blackhall.
