Art Block

The group was constituted in 2005, and has over 60 committed members, from the Tyne to the Tees and beyond. Through these themed projects edan members are provided with the opportunity to research their subject within a supportive environment, furthering their artistic and academic knowledge. We contribute to the cultural development of the region, by successfully establishing links between artists, industry and commerce.

We use empty shops, offices, local council and university premises, nature reserves and gardens for our projects and exhibitions. As visual artists we have discovered that if we want our work to be seen, we must create our own audiences.
