Children’s Artworks To Light Up North Shields Metro

Posted on: 9th March 2022

Bring your cameras and tell your friends! We are getting ready for our final event as part of Together Again on Thursday 17 March 2022 between 7 and 8pm. See what families love about their hometown and learn more about their hopes for the town as their artworks illuminate the exterior of North Shields Metro Station.

Throughout 2021/22 Helix Arts have enjoyed working with community members in North Shields and Wallsend on Together Again .

We are delighted to share artworks made by families as part of this project with Alizon Bennet. They will illuminate the outside of North Shields metro on Thursday 17 March from 7-8pm. See what you can spot in the showreel which lasts a little over 10 minutes.

You will also discover more about the thoughts and feelings residents shared in this project when Creative Producer Elizabeth chatted to people out and about on both towns high streets and green spaces with Jay Sykes. Helix team member Stephen Pritchard will be on hand to chat.

Helix Arts wishes to thank Nexus and North Tyneside Council for granting us permission to bring you this exciting event.

Special thanks to our funders The Coop Foundation for helping us listen to our community needs. What we have learned will help us plan future projects across North Tyneside and the wider region.

Finally, a massive well done to everyone who took part alongside project artists Alizon Bennet, Jay Sykes and Sofia Barton.

Plan on coming along? We’d love to see your photographs. If you share them on twitter or facebook remember to tag @HelixArts #TogetherAgain #SpaceToConnect
