Digital Stories

The Northern Spirit digital stories were made through a collaboration between the Art on Tyneside project and the Culture Shock! project led by Tyne and Wear Archives and Museums.

The first group was run with the Friends of the Laing Art Gallery. Those involved made stories about Niels Møller Lund, one of the artists displayed in Northern Spirit, the excitement of flying over the Tyne and a love of Thomas Bewick’s illustrations.

The second group was run with South Tyneside Adult and Community Learning Team and worked with people recently arrived in the region and learning English. The work in South Shields produced fascinating stories of exploring the curry culture of Ocean Road, walking on the beach praying, the experience of arriving in the North East for the first time and how Egypt and South Shields measure up!

Here are just a couple of the stories by Ali Liaquat and Gersain Henao. The rest of the South Shields’ stories can be seen on the Culture Shock! website and all the digital stories can be seen in the Northern Spirit gallery.
