We recently celebrated the launch of our project 'A River' at Pattinson House

We had a great time at Pattinson House’s open house event which saw the launch of A River – our community mural produced by local residents and artist Stephen Pritchard.

Throughout the event we facilitated a free drawing activity, allowing visitors to draw, add to their own river and let their inner creativities out. Participants drew with pens on long sticks, testing dexterity and encouraging imagination regardless of ability.

The event had a great turn out and we were grateful to the Gateshead Mayor, Councillor Dot Burnett, for taking part and adding her own artwork to our ‘river’.



With Thanks

We would like to thank A River funder Blue Stone Collaborative – Well Gateshead Newcastle for organising the celebration and Pattinson House for hosting us.
