Making Memories

August 2021 - ongoing

Sharing stories and experiences through creative sessions. Working with families who share a caring role in looking after loved ones who depend on them.

Part of Better Connect

Making Memories is about making artwork together, sharing stories and experiences with families. This project will aim to work with families who have share a caring role in looking after their loved ones day to day.

Sessions are being offered to whole families as well as small group participatory arts experiences for young carers, siblings, guardians/parents/grandparents and wider family members.

We believe taking time out for yourself can make a world of difference!

Making Memories is a key project in the Better Connect programme and our partners, the Family Gateway, are strategic in our work across North Tyneside.

Artists Theresa Easton and Theresa Poulton will undertake an Artist in Residency programme from January – March 2022. They will listen and respond to your stories, ideas and opinions through participatory arts sessions.

Sessions will be flexible, and available across the week at various locations across North Tyneside including, online, in-venue at Howdon Community Hub, converstions in the park, creative chats in the cafe. In these challenging times, what makes it easier for you to engage?
