North Tyneside VODA

‘Covid Stories’ began as a VODA led event for North Tyneside Council in November 2021. It offered an opportunity for residents to be heard and listened to. 

The community shared their life experiences during the Covid pandemic. Helix Arts led a series of conversations and creative workshops which captured local residents’ experiences of living through this time. 

Challenges were explored, the turbulence and heartache resounded. Incredible acts of kindness and community spirit that we all witnessed were shared. 

A team of artists facilitated the day resulting in the creation of multiple artworks which will be exhibited across the borough ensuring the wider community can experience the artworks. 

‘Covid Stories’ serves as a lasting reminder of our collective experiences in North Tyneside.
