North East Connected

Hopping Across The North East From Hub To Hub

MIDDLESBROUGH residents are invited to join a fun six week programme to tell their stories about the town.

Middlesbrough Libraries have received Arts Council England funding to create Middlesbrough: My Town My Future and offer residents the chance to tell their story.

During the six week programme participants will learn how to take inspirational photographs and create a compelling story about their place in our town.

Participants will work with Mark Williams, a photography tutor with Middlesbrough Community Learning, creative writing tutor Natalie Scott and curators from Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art to create a digital community story.

All equipment is provided and no experience is necessary.

Ruth Cull, Library Development Officer, said: “We’re really excited to offer this six week programme for residents to learn new skills, tell their story and create a way to share their story with the public.

“We’ve got a great team of enthusiastic tutors and would love to invite people from different backgrounds across the town to come together to reflect the diverse community and their different versions of Middlesbrough.”

The programme will run in three locations during September and October – Mondays 2-4pm at Central Library from September 4, Tuesdays 10am-12pm at Marton Library from September 5 and Thursdays 2-4pm at Acklam Library from September 7.
