SUNDERLAND CULTURE COMMISSION
FOR THE TALL SHIPS RACE 2018
I was commissioned, in collaboration with artist Sian O'keefe and curator Vincent Todd, by Sunderland Culture to produce an Open Access Community event as part of the Tall Ships Arts Programming in July 2018. This project was supported by the Great Place Scheme and was sited in the historically significant Huchinson's Building. The building was in the early stages of its rescue and refurbishment at this time and the commission was the first to take place in the space. Following this commission the space at Mackie's Corner continued to be used as a cultural and contemporary arts space.
