Looking Through the Porthole

Blyth Town Council was delighted to learn that the Arts Council England have awarded funding to a group of four Northumberland artists for a project related to the Tall Ships Regatta. The project team, Michele Rickitt, Ann Marie Dalton, Denise Primrose and Jane Suttcliffe came together thanks to a bait initiative, the Creative Futures Enterprise Programme under the mentorship of Jane Shaw.

The project involves groups from the Briardale, Buffalo and Isabella Community Centres. The artists will be delivering workshops in each of the community centres over the next four months exploring the theme of a voyage.
