Episode 27 – The Age of Love by Heather Phillipson

Location: BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art

Episode 25 – Beacon Films

A little while ago the girls went over to the Whitley Bay Playhouse to check out the Beacon Films 2018 Premier, a night full of short films and entertainment. It was a fantastic and very inclusive evening, so we thought it deserved talking about.

“Beacon Films C.I.C. is a multi-award winning training and production organisation for filmmakers who have learning difficulties, autism and additional needs, whose work has received over 100 festival screenings across many countries and has been praised by people from across the world of film.”

Episode 23 – North Tyneside Art Studio

For this episode the girls wanted to talk about the GeNErosity Festival and North Tyneside Art Studio, an organisation that offers a safe, non-judgemental environment where people can explore their creativity at their own pace, to help improve and sustain good mental health as part of a friendly and welcoming community.
