Inventors launch in Sunderland 16th Jan

In Autumn 2015 Dominic Wilcox encouraged hundreds of people in Sunderland and South Tyneside to return to their inventing roots. Dominic worked with schools, community groups and the public across the Cultural Spring wards to inspire as many new Inventors! as possible.

A selection of the 500 drawings were chosen by Dominic Wilcox and a panel of local makers, expert trades people and manufacturers to be made in to real life objects that featured in a pop up exhibition in Fawcett Street Sunderland throughout January 2016.
