The Share at Guide Post Social Club explored the role of
working men’s clubs as a hub for the arts in a community
by establishing a partnership with a Working Men’s Club in
South East Northumberland.
The project, which was delivered over 18 months, has provided learning from a range of arts
activities, including the work of two artists in residence and culminated in an exhibition1 at
Woodhorn Museum visited by over 23,000 people between June and October 2015. The
exhibition comprised a collection of work created and inspired by the people and heritage of
the Club including work by photographer in residence, Mik Critchlow and a selection of drinking
vessels made by the ‘Over 60s Bingo Club’ with the support of ceramic artist Emilie Taylor.
