The Barn at Easington was commissioned by Shotton Community Centre to work with community groups, creating art to respond to the question: What makes you shine? The project aimed to bring different groups together and showcase local talent as well as core values.
Between January and March 2018
Our Lady of Lourdes RC primary School
Shotton Colliery Primary School
Shotton Colliery Art group
Talking to the groups about what makes people light up, we discovered that the most precious treasures are, Family, friends, and community… Love and kindness
Discussions with groups inspired the sparkle and shine of their artworks from silk painted banners to mosaics and treasure boxes of memories.
What Makes You shine? was funded by East Durham Creates Big Ideas Fund.
