Discussions about how people access arts, the barriers in place, and the groups that exist to make art accessible.
Kath Price runs "Fun with Fabrics" workshops through the Cultural Spring, and talks about the challenges of being an older artist. Both Kath and Denise Dowdeswell, Visual Artist, are collaborators with the Sunderland INDIE project, a group which bring arts to non-traditional venues in Sunderland.
Also, two guests form the Spectrum Cultural Hub - Pip Cottam, the newly appointed Project Director, and Phil Barker, who's leading their "Kids Draw Project". We discussed the benefits of arts, and the importance of including art within education for young people.
