Greenfield Arts were delighted to receive a donation recently from Brian Agar of Newton Aycliffe’s Community Support Initiative (CSI Aycliffe). Brian has kindly honoured a donation of £300 which was initially suggested by renowned fund-raiser Honest John who sadly died earlier this year.
Brian can be found continuing in the footsteps of Honest John as the Community Support Initiative have premises on the first floor of the IES Centre, where they have a selection of quality used items for sale.
The donation is to be dedicated to the Cree group from Greenfield Arts and its members have been instrumental in bringing about this kind donation. The group of male volunteers have been involved in a number of projects that benefit the community and improve their own wellbeing. They are looking forward to being able to continue their valuable work in the near future.
The group are scheduled to work alongside artist Bethan Maddocks as part of the Finders, Seekers project. Bethan is a visual artist who often works with drawing and paper structure making and creates site specific ephemeral installations that engage audiences. Bethan will be working alongside the Men’s Cree group and the wider community to stimulate creativity, questioning and curiosity.
Greenfield Arts are delighted for the support from individuals and organisations in the form of donations and specific funding and are committed to engage with the community through the arts to bring about positive outcomes.
