South Shields Seafront Interpretation Project
"Inspired by the recent major Seachange regeneration of the South Shields promenade at Sandhaven, Grit & Pearl, in collaboration with South Tyneside Council,invited artists to undertake a series of mini-residencies on the seafront at South Shields".
As part of the above I spent a number of days on-site in August and September walking the seafront; talking to people with an interest in the beach; and researching in the archives.
Two ideas were put forward and one of them has been taken forward resulting in the production of two issues of a limited-edition 'newspaper' called 'The SandPaper'.
