We worked with Emily on our River Tees Re-discovered Willow Pattern Plate engagement last year and will be working with Emily again in the next few months in a residency to be based in Middlesbrough and engage with groups of refugees and newly arrived people who co-produced with her during the Localism exhibition at mima earlier this year. Read Emily’s interview, as artist of the month, in AXIS below:
And watch this space to see our collaboration with Emily later this year.
I just wanted to say a big thank you for your sessions on Wednesday. We had 15 young people attend from Stockton, Hartlepool, Middlesbrough, Durham and Darlington and feedback from them was hugely positive. On arrival they were all a bit shy but Maurice’s session really brought them all out of their shells. By the end of the day you would have thought they’d all known each other for ages. We also witnessed some great artists and some budding film makers.
As their carers picked them up at the end of the day they were all raving about the day and had clearly enjoyed it.
Big thank you to you all!
