Work tunes into culture
Stories celebrating the rich heritage of North Tyneside have been broadcast to the world in a series of audio recordings.
The Culture Bites project was led by writer and audio producer Rachel Cochrane, of the listenupnorth website, with funding from the Arts Council and North Tyneside Council.
Professional and amateur writers were inspired by local landmarks to pen plays, short stories, letters and poetry, and record them at the venues.
Rachel said: “The north east is such a place of great culture and great locations and it inspires people to be creative.”
They are available to listen to online at listenupnorth.com and have already attracted hundreds of downloads.
A mobile listening post is also available at Segedunum until Sunday, St Mary’s Island from August 8 to 21, and the Old Low Light Heritage centre later this month.
