'North Shields Triangle'
Home Zone regeneration project
2006


Collaboration with lead artist Kieth Barrett siting carved sculpture on residential streets.
This 'street art' was one aspect of a regeneration programme initiated by local residents in 1997. Eventually the community were fortunate enough to win a substantial government grant to pursue the scheme as a Home Zone project. This enabled more ambitious plans for environmental development including, tree planting, traffic calming measures, the laying of new street surfaces and a budget for art works.

Input from other artists included mosaic, murals and glasswork.
