Greenfield Arts says it’s delighted to be maintaining and developing a number of ongoing creative projects despite the Covid lockdown.
Although the Greenfield Community Arts Centre and its wider community activity is on hold, the team are working hard with partners to develop current projects.
And they still look forward to a future Greenfield Arts programme offer which include projects such as Shildon in Motion, The Wizard and Typhoon, a community spirit project and an outdoor art work project.
Greenfield says creative Director Katy Milne has collaborated with artists and partners in the community to “bring about a positive change”, inviting the community to be creative, curious and enquiring.
Shildon in Motion is a project that has allowed Greenfield to work with the Shildon community to bring about a new artistic gateway to Shildon Railway Station which will be unveiled later in the year.
And students have been working with professional artists recognising influential figures from Shildon in a project titled The Wizard and Typhoon.
And looking back over Greenfield Arts’ 20-year history, other memorable projects over the past two decades include Bring the Funny, an uplifting installation seen at Newton Aycliffe railway station, Cutting Loose with its spectacular creations and amazing carnival finale, and commissioned installations that you may see dotted about the region.
“We are currently making a film for our 20th birthday celebration and would like the community to help us celebrate,” added Katy.
“What does creativity mean to you? Have you been inspired by our projects or activities? What activities or projects have you enjoyed?”.
