Enjoy a variety of artwork created through one of our community projects at this pop-up exhibition.

Between January and March 2019, the Hatton Gallery brought together a group of Creative Friends (a dementia-friendly group working with Equal Arts in Newcastle), and a group of pre-school children and helpers (mostly) from Ladybird nursery in Gosforth. 

The groups worked together to explore who we are and what we look like, make mess, get to know the gallery, enjoy juice & tea & biscuits and make new friends.

For one day only, we are proud to present the work produced over the course of the project, which includes painting, printing, drawing & sculpture.

- Thank you so much for letting us be a part of the Equal Age project. The  children have come back and talked non-stop, one even used the word ‘awesome’ to describe it.

 - I could work with the little ones forever - that’s the best morning I’ve had in months.
