Date: 2nd - 15th of July.

Time: 10am - 4pm, every day.


Come and celebrate the amazing work that people across England have created through our Community Arts project as part of Back from the Brink.

For the last two years, the Back from the Brink community artists have been working closely with our 19 projects and the general public, across the country, to produce beautiful pieces that celebrate the rare wildlife near them - from the Narrow-headed Ant to the Shrill Carder Bee.

This exhibition is a unique and eclectic range of works, in a variety of media, that explore the themes of rarity, fragility and our connection to the natural world. Learn about our projects and the amazing work that we've done with communities across England.

It will be running at the Great North Museum: Hancock from the 2nd until the 15th of July, 10-4pm, every day.
