Spotlight On Our Past

Mon – Fri, 10am – 5pm; Sat, 11am – 4pm

South Shields Museum & Art Gallery

An artistic response by charity Arts 4 Wellbeing to an invitation from the National Trust Seascapes Project and Tyne and Wear Museums to visit both Souter lighthouse and Arbeia Roman fort.

Inspiration for the exhibition came from not only the dramatic visual aspects of these striking local landmarks but also from much reflection of their wider historical and cultural importance, as well as their relationship with our own individual family histories to produce an exhibition just as colourful and unique as our rich local heritage.

Arts 4 Wellbeing is a grassroots art organisation that enables people with learning disabilities and mental health issues from South Tyneside to access arts resources and take part in arts projects. We believe in seeing the ability not the disability and create an inclusive atmosphere in our local studio so that all abilities are welcome.
