Lost and Found

Mon – Sat, 10am – 4pm

Launch event 8 June, 12 – 2pm

Queen’s Hall Arts Centre

An exhibition featuring Ukrainian and British visual artists and their individual responses to what is lost and found when one leaves home and finds oneself in a new country: meetings, connections, place and identity.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a renga poetry writing day for visitors to respond and contribute their own lost and found experiences.

Since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in 2022, several displaced Ukrainian artists have come to live in Tynedale, Northumberland. Their arrival has brought a richness and diversity to the area’s creative community. They have acted as a catalyst to bring together local artists, from different art forms, into a new creative community. Over the past year, the group has met regularly, sharing artistic and cultural practice.

This exhibition is part of Seeds of Hope, a new cross-arts project, comprising four public events entitled, Departure, Routes, Lost and Found and Arrival. The events take place monthly between the spring equinox and the summer solstice, marking the increasing daylight and sowing seeds of hope for a more peaceful future. Each event is led by a pair of Ukrainian/Tynedale artists and embrace a range of art forms. Local people can engage with the work as both audience and creative participants.
