Call for Artists and Creatives: Steelworks Factory Night at Tanfield Railway, Stanley 9th June 2013

Steelworks Project Space is a new network and project space for creative people living and working in and around Derwentside. For their first event, they're collaborating with rednile projects and the Factory Nights programme to create - a Steelworks Factory Night.

Factory Nights is a series of experimental and spontaneous sessions held in interesting spaces or 'hidden gems.' Now in its 6th year, Factory Nights continues to be an innovative approach to commissioning site related art whilst inspiring ideas, collaboration, connections and support between artists working in any specialism. Factory Nights is not a discussion event, seminar or workshop - each event is different depending on the mix of attendees and the venue.
Steelworks Project Space is being supported in its development by Durham Creatives - a county wide initiative supporting the development of new creative industry businesses.

Calling artists and creative people with an interest in the history of Derwentside, the oldest steam train in the world, engineering, renovation, travel and collaboration...
   to bring together a group of creative people from all disciplines to gain inspiration from each other and from the history of the Tanfield Railway and surrounding countryside.

The day will involve a walk and talk guided tour of the engine and carriage shed, a look at the construction and renovation of steam trains and carriages, a journey in a private carriage on the steam train and a picnic at Causey Arch - the oldest surviving single-arch railway bridge in the world, and a key element of the industrial heritage of England.  There will be the chance to meet, share and connect with a group of selected creative people across the North East and to become part of this new and creative organisation
