Earlier this year Tees Valley Arts worked with River Tees Re-discovered to provide artistic engagement at the “Welcome Aboard” community launches held in Middlesbrough, Darlington, Stockton, Hartlepool and Redcar.
Artists Adrian Moule and Emily Hesse were commissioned and developed our RTR Willow Pattern engagement, where participants were encouraged to interpret the River Tees informed by the traditional willow pattern.
Just shy of 300 people made plates and took there home and now we’re asking you to tell the story of the plate you made or have been given by sending us a photo via social media using the #myblueandwhite
Keep track of how we’re getting on here:
TVA is a participatory arts organisation, based in Middlesbrough and working across the Tees Valley, helping people change and improve their lives by taking part in the arts. TVA is a small organisation which makes a big impact in imaginative and unexpected ways.
