Heritage Action Zone - Community Make It Happen Team

Over six two-hour sessions our Make It Happen Community project team learned how to create and deliver their own co-produced art project inspired by North Shields’ heritage.

The sessions covered:

  • Introduction to participatory arts and initial project planning and consultation
  • Project life cycle & Project scope
  • Management and coordination (including budget management)
  • Project development – individual and group ideas
  • Artist recruitment 1 – Up to Shortlisting
  • Artist recruitment 2 – Up to contracting/induction & overseeing the production of artwork
  •  Monitoring and evaluation

The project the group will plan and deliver will celebrate the heritage of North Shields in the Heritage Action Zone.

Heritage Map

Wanting to create something visual and fun, the team partnered up with artist Gaynor Devaney to create a textile map.

Hosting four workshops across the area, members of Sew 29, joined the group and local residents to create pieces of artwork which represented North Shields to be added to the map.
