Let’s Meet in the Middle
Skimstone Arts worked with Newcastle City Council’s Arts Team as part of their Let’s Meet in the Middle project.
Claire Webster Saaremets worked as Artist in Residence with participants from three settings – St Anthony’s Day Centre, Assisi House supported living and The Bostey Youth Centre – to consider whatever our age, the universal and individual playful artistic exploration and creation of new works, inspired by found objects and shared themes about life… and beyond.
Locks, keys and candlesticks, opening, pushing, twisting… what new stories can we tell about our real and imaginary worlds through text, song, poetry and monologues?
Let’s Meet in the Middle showcases the work of artists and communities from across Newcastle produced as part of Newcastle Art Team’s 2017/18 artist-in-residence and arts connect programmes.
This engagement has encouraged local people of all ages to investigate and reflect on a range of subjects – including waste, wildlife, relationships, disability, dementia, mental health and poverty – and to work with local artists to represent their reflections in a variety of unexpected and creative ways.
