Our Blossom

We’re delighted to have been commissioned by National Trust Gibside and Gateshead Council to lead the delivery of a series of artist-led workshops this Spring.

Gibside is taking part in the Festival of Blossom – a national multi-year, multi-faceted initiative that seeks to inspire everyone, everywhere to celebrate the blossom season.

The Festival of Blossom will take over Gibside National Trust in Spring 2023 with a range of activities aimed at appreciating blossom.

We have commissioned visual artist Megan Randall to work with 3 diverse community groups in Gateshead to co-create a piece of artwork that connects with blossom in a meaningful and empowering way whilst also supporting their wellbeing.

The co-created artworks will be displayed in the grounds of Gibside, with a public celebration event in June 2023.
