a zine made with Melody Sproates
launch event January 21st 5-7pm
47 Victoria Ave, Whitley Bay
Washed Up is a collaborative zine project led by zine artist Mel Sproates. We invited Mel to lead a series of creative workshops with some of the people we met through ArtHouses this year, and the zine has developed from these sessions. It explores themes of connection and interconnection in Whitley Bay- the ways we relate to our homes, the places we live, our art and each other.
We will be hosting an open-house event to launch the zine on the 21st January from 5 til 7 pm at 47 Victoria Avenue, Whitley Bay. Everyone is welcome. It is great opportunity to meet Mel and talk to them about the project, as well as many of the people who have contributed to the zine, and of course get your very own copy of Washed Up hot off the press. This event will also be an opportunity to explore Giles Bailey's project for ArtHouses:22, Tea Universe.
