Hello ideas,
A grass roots project is developing rapidly in Sunderland. All We Are Saying is about artists for peace. For further information about something that I think will be pretty big next September, please email back. Why not follow its progress through the early stages.
With kindest regards

Do you consider airing videos made by people in the North of England !!!!!

just been watching some Youtube videos of a couple of guys from York, who did some off the cuff travels on their motorcycles " Ewin Mcgreggor and Charlie Borman they are not" but funny it is.

I would love to see this televised....
Shaw2Shore is the youtube creator..

Skimstone Arts, a company made of collabrotive artists, including young people from around the north east, would be worth a look into. They have an exhibition at the Discovery Museum called A Natural Anthem, based around World War 1.

A Natural Anthem is a collaboration between Skimstone Arts' professional Ensemble and experienced artists from Young Artist Collective, funded by the Esme Fairbairn Foundation.

Inspired by documents held in Tyne & Wear Archives and Issac Rosenberg's Returning, We Hear the Larks', A Natural Anthem explores the impact of threat, harnessing of community action during First World War, and today's fight to protect the natural world.

Definitely worth a look into, or contacting as it would be interesting to watch on the channel, seeing how the young people of the North East can produce some amazing art work and put such great effort into what they do.
