Artist in Transit North East

Since 2015, Artists in Transit have supported new communities in Athens, Greece. Providing art workshops to refugee children living in squats, temporary accommodation or camps.

Due to the current global health crisis Covid-19 limiting our capabilities as a group, our focus shifted to supporting our immediate communities across London and where possible finding ways to connect with our friends in Athens & support local people.

This led to our ARTISTS IN ISOLATION (AII) project, in which we are currently providing ongoing support to a local refugee charity ( LOVE TO LEARN ) by delivering art packs to vulnerable children and families. Each pack includes art materials and guidance for participation. Lead artists create instructional videos and participation is open to the public!

Please follow us on INSTAGRAM and FACEBOOK to watch and take part in our project!

Due to the success of our project, which has resulted in over 600 art-packs delivered since March/April 2020, we are now trialling the expansion of Artists in Isolation in the North East, within the Newcastle upon Tyne/Gateshead area to support children and families facing hardship.

Donations will go towards:

- Art equipment

- Extra costs to ensure products are delivered in a sanitised way.
