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.
Corners East Durham involved nine European artists working with communities in Horden, Shotton and Blackhall and was delivered by ISIS Arts in partnership with East Durham Creates.
Individual projects in each of the villages came to a climax on Thursday 28, Friday 29 and Saturday 30 September 2017.
“I think the project will be a springboard for us here to be more creative and we can see what can be achieved. So the legacy is an artistic one – they’ve shown us what is possible and what we can aspire to. I feel bereft now they’re all gone – it was like being on holiday and then coming home.” – Alison Paterson, Blackhall Community Centre Manager.
