The Team of volunteers have a wealth of experience in Intergenerational work.  They bring different generations together in order to better understand  each other.  The Intergenerational Service has a proud tradition of  promoting mutual understanding and leanrning between generations.

The Team will be working with Theresa Easton and a group of pupils from Richardson Dees School, creating a hand printed and designed book exploring the issues and themes addressing the Intergenerational gap.

Work generated from the project will be exhibited at BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art as part of the BALTIC Artist’s Book Fair in early June.

This  project is funded through Arts Council England and is part of the Festival of the North East.
