This page shows the alumni of the Tees Valley Arts organisation in the year 2019 and the years that they had served here.
Following a family bereavement, 14-year-old Alisha turned her life around and embarked on a journey to become a youth worker, determined to impact on the lives of young people just like her, living in Stockton. Through the Corner House project, she was able to rethink what her future might be and see positivity, where she was previously wondering where to turn.
Steel Gala Reimagined
The shadow of the closed Redcar Steelworks emanates throughout the local community, and local people have distinct ideas and memories of what being part of that community means and has meant in the past, and what future could bring.
Since the running down and closure of most of the Steel Works, local groups have continued to run more modest versions of the Steel Gala, bringing together volunteers and people of all ages.
In collaboration with the ‘Ladies of Steel’ community group, the Steel Gala Reimagined event will run on 18th August 2019 at the Corus Sports & Social Club in Dormanstown, which used to be the British Steel Club Dormanstown, using their outdoor events/sports ground and club buildings.
