Under the commissioning strand This Place We Call Home’ we have appointed our next major body of work named If These Walls Could Talk. Sally Southern and Nicola Lynch two North East visual artists working on the project have already been out meeting people of East Durham and we want you to get involved!
If These Walls Could Talk will be inspired by the local people of East Durham recalling stories about what home means to them. Sally and Nicola are currently out and about talking to lots of people and groups gathering ideas, and linking up with people who may become involved in helping to create the new work which will be completed in the spring. It is likely to be a large installation which will put a new visual twist on everyday home life.
They are holding lots of workshops in the area for local folk over 55 years to get involved and chat to them before the next stage of the process where the actual installation will start to take shape. The tea cup garden sessions have already proved very popular! To get involved join us at one of the workshops listed below.
