Our Yes You Can adult learning art group today were introduced to our East Durham Creates project to find out how they can get involved in more arty things which happen in our local community. We are pleased to see such enthusiasm from the group to come to some of the exciting things East Durham Creates have planned for this year.
A massive thank you to the staff, students and parents at The Academy at Shotton Hall for their generous donation to our food bank today. It is great to see our local community supporting one another. We are always looking for donations to support our ever growing demand for food parcels, so any donations will be greatly appreciated.

Most recently through our Arts Council England project East Durham Creates we have been working with young people, in a project called 'No More Shy Bairns'. Young women were shown Vote 100: Born a Rebel which is about the northern Suffragette movement. This inspired them to create their own poetry through a workshop with spoken word artist Jess Green. From here the group got involved in our 'No More Nowt Happens' project and organised a spoken word night. And if that wasn't enough some of the brave young woman performed some of their poetry to a crowd of over 80 people.
