This Easter, artists are collaborating with communities across the North East to create exciting new work based on the themes in the Passion story. Each artist will present their work in a shipping container which will then become one of the 12 Stations of the Cross for the BBC Great North Passion on BBC ONE on Good Friday, presented by Fern Britton.
bait has teamed up with the BBC and artist Patrick Murphy to work with community groups at Ashington Children’s Centre and ex-miners at Woodhorn Museum.
Director Rachel Adam says, "bait supports people in South East Northumberland to create and take part in inspiring arts projects. The next few weeks will be exciting, as groups work with Patrick to create a brand new artwork in response to the themes of loss and resilience. We are delighted to be working in partnership with Action for Children on this project to build awareness of the creativity, ideas and ambition of local people.”
