Evaluation Case Study - The Ashington District Star

The Pitmen Painters, as they were commonly known, used their art to share their thoughts and feelings on everyday life in Ashington. The Ashington District Star aimed to document everyday life in Ashington today through photographs of local people and places taken by the editorial team. The project began at the end of 2013 and the photos were published between autumn 2014 and autumn 2015 in four editions of the newspaper distributed to approximately 2,000 people. The project was celebrated in an exhibition at Woodhorn Museum which ran from October 2015 to March 2016. 120 people attended the launch and preview event in October 2015 and approximately 13,650 people visited the exhibition over four months.
