19th March - 12th June 2016
Common Ground brought together work by five contemporary artists and four community groups living and working in South East Northumberland. Across four months members of Guidepost Social Club, ESCAPE Family Support, Action for Children Sure Start Ashington Children’s Centre and South East Northumberland teachers worked with artists Aaron Guy, Robert Parkinson, Maureen Hanley, Monika Dutta and Alice Myers.
Place, personal stories and everyday experiences became the common ground as the artists and group members explored the links between life and art.
This was produced in partnership with: Woodhorn Museum, Bait, BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, Northumberland Arts Development, Guidepost Social Club, ESCAPE Family Support and Action for Children Sure Start Ashington Children Centre.
