I am proud to be one of the artists associated with The Cultural Spring, which has improved access to the arts in Sunderland and South Tyneside over the last six years.
I have been running calligraphy workshops in the communities the project has empowered for the last five years and I hope to run more in the future.
Funding has been secured from Arts Council England for the third phase of the project, taking it into more communities that wouldn’t traditionally access the arts and culture.
Consultation with residents is now underway, although the methods have been adapted to take into account the restrictions imposed as a result of the coronavirus Covid-19.
Here’s the appeal from the Cultural Spring team in full:
For the past six years The Cultural Spring has been working to increase participation in arts and culture in Sunderland and South Tyneside.
• South Tyneside: Hebburn North, Hebburn South and Primrose
• Sunderland: Ryhope, Doxford and Silksworth
