Artists in Residence 2014/15

This year’s programme culminated in a celebration event at The Octagon on 16 July 2015, with local MP Alan Johnson as key speaker. He said,

“We achieved City of Culture status as a city because we focused our efforts on what culture and arts could do for the future and what it can do for our communities. I think Estate of the Nation is the first living proof of what we meant by that…. This is a terrific project.”

Our commissioned artists were:

Silvio Palladino
Andy Pea
Middle Child
