Making brand new artworks which are created by East Durham and celebrate our very special place is at the heart of this strand.
We will do this through working with you to select artists with imaginative ideas and deliver a wide range of arts activities where you become the creators to make something new – showing our place in a different light and telling local stories.
We will lead three new commissions, working across East Durham with residents, artists and partners to explore their idea of home – making the most of what we have and using our unique place. Each commission (one per year) will work with a different group families, older adults and people not in education, employment or training. This will result in an event for everyone to enjoy and will create something which can last beyond the project.
Our hope is to bring people together through creating, people having the choice to take part, raising local pride and showing the world our wonderful area by using the arts.
We would like to hear your thoughts on the theme of home for this strand. Your ideas will help inform our next creative art commission in East Durham! Click here to get started.
