PROJECT HOPES TO ENCOURAGE PEOPLE IN THE COMMUNITY TO ‘LOOK THROUGH A DIFFERENT LENS’ ABOUT WHERE
Communities have the chance to take part in an internationally-acclaimed arts project.
Taking place from September 19-30, Corners of Europe uses stories to connect communities and artists from the edges of Europe with people in the UK.
Nine international artists are working with local groups to create striking artworks for public spaces.
It’s a spin-off from the original project in Stockholm in 2010, which has gone on to incorporate other leading arts institutions across Europe.
Sharon Bailey, executive co-director of ISIS Arts, which is delivering the project in partnership with East Durham Creates, said: “Horden, Shotton, and Blackhall will each host a project – an alternative guided tourist trail around Shotton; an installation of games from across Europe in Horden and a mapping and archive storytelling project that uses online radio to share gathered stories in Blackhall.
