Join us from 10am today for our week-long take-over of the #brilliantlyboro #creativefactory space in the Hill Street Centre, Middlesbrough, where we will be working from for the next week. So if you’re in Boro and fancy popping along and meeting with us, then we look forward to seeing you.
What’s Going On
There will be a number of things happening every day – from the screening of our curated Life films, as part of Real Tees Valley, to our exploration of your memories of public art across Teesside to a reflection on the books we have published over the years – we’ll also be announcing each morning a series of special guests who’ll be joining us that day. So keep your eyes peeled for more information…
Real Tees Valley Films
If you enjoyed the of our Real Tees Valley Films then you’ll be excited to know that the #brilliantlyboro space will be the Middlesbrough stop of our Real Tees Valley Film Trail and you’ll be able to see our five films curated on the theme of LIfe.
From our foundation in 1983 until the late 2000s Cleveland and the Tees Valley Arts was one of the largest commissioners of public art in the country, yet we only have a photographic record of those commissions.
So we’ve printed those photographs and brought them to the space so that we can hear your stories and memories of these pieces of public art, some of which are no longer in place.
Over the past thirty years, we have published many pamphlets, books, anthologies and other publications to document our work. Many of these works feature the writing of the people we were collaborating with.
Did you participate in one of these projects? Did your work get published?
If so we’d like to hear your story and if you’d like a copy of the work you contributed towards, we have a number of surplus copies that we’ll be happy to give you.
This page contains a video and that video is titled "Creative Bloom".
