Virtual Go & See Visits

Go and See visits from the comfort of your own home

Grayson Perry Exhibition

 

East Durham Creates’ Go & See project organises visits for our community to attend local and national cultural venues. As we can no longer facilitate this due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have worked with our ‘Advanced Party’ (members of our local community who advise us on the project) to developed a new way of allowing local people to still access these experiences by virtually visiting exhibitions and watching theatre online. On Wednesdays East Durham Creates launches a new Virtual Go & See Visit which runs for 2 weeks. At the end of the 2 weeks on Tuesday evenings at 6pm, local people who have participated are invited to join a Zoom Meeting to discuss their experience of the virtual visit with East Durham Creates and other members of our local community.

If you wish to get involved in these meetings or wish to find out more information regarding the project please email Emma at emma.biggins@eastdurhamcreates.co.uk
