BALTIC has been continuing its work in connecting with local communities through Art Lab, an ongoing holiday programme offering artist-led activities and meals throughout the school holidays. In December 2020, BALTIC worked together with local food suppliers and artist Isabella Carreras to create and distribute fun, tasty and creative packages to families and individuals across Birtley, Gateshead.
Launched in May 2019 and delivered in partnership with Birtley Hub Resource Centre, Art Lab is an ongoing holiday programme offering daily artist-led activities, weekly trips and lunch throughout the school holidays. The offer is developed with and for families living in Birtley and particularly families who usually access free school meals during term time.
This Easter holidays BALTIC is continuing to connect with local communities through Art Lab - an ongoing programme offering artist-led activities and meals throughout the school holidays.
