Introductions Lead to Art Exhibition

We’re pleased to announce that our Introductions project will be having an exhibition at Haven Point Leisure Centre in South Shields!

The exhibition launches on Tuesday 28th March until Saturday 1st April. The exhibition will be open 11am – 2pm each day.

Introductions saw three South Tyneside based organisations work alongside three regional artists to create artistic and creative work that showcased the organisation and the fantastic work that they do.

The project involved three short, paid residencies, during which the artists and organisations worked together to develop an idea for a project or longer residency. Now the work has been produced, it will form the content of a free exhibition.

The three collaborations were: film-maker Julie Ballands and Age Concern Tyneside South (ACTS); Northumberland-based artist and photographer Jose Snook and befriending service Happy at Home; and animator and film-maker Sheryl Jenkins and St Clare’s Hospice.

You can come along to the exhibition and see the final work created and find out more about the organisations.

The exhibition will be at Haven Point, Pier Parade, South Shields, NE33 2JS.
