GRAND HOTEL ARTISTS' RESIDENCY




















Whitley Bay poet Keith Armstrong and graphic artist Peter Dixon of North Shields begin an arts residency at Tynemouth's Grand Hotel towards the end of June.

They will be documenting the hotel in words and images and the results of their residency wil be launched in a brochure and special display on Thursday 9th September as part of North Tyneside's Heritage Open Days programme.

Armstrong and Dixon recently collaborated on 'From Segedunum to the Spanish City', a book about North Tyneside's rich heritage, funded by North Tyneside Council and Awards for All, which also featured the Grand Hotel.

The two artists have just returned from a highly successful arts pilgrimage to Prague.
