I am delighted to be leading on the management of some creative workshops here in Northumberland over the next couple of weeks for Danny Boyle’s Pages of the Sea project produced by 14.18now and led in the North East by Sunderland Culture and National Trust.
The idea behind Pages of the Sea is beautifully articulated by Danny Boyle here; https://www.pagesofthesea.org.uk
I will be working alongside visual artist Yvette Hawkins and writer Stevie Ronnie to people from Northumberland aged 2-82 in a series of creative activity leading up to the event on 11.11.
We’ll travel into communities, along coast roads and make beautiful art to help people in memorials of World War 1.
I can’t wait to get started and I’m really looking forward to being part of such a poignant national event follow me on twitter for updates if you like or if you’d like to come along there’s more info here.
Updated; gorgeous drone footage of the event over 30 beaches is here; https://www.pagesofthesea.org.uk/
One of the most poignant and warm community experiences I’ve had where a beautiful re-imaged portrait of a fallen hero from Blyth helped us all remember those who gave their lives so we could live the ones we live now.
