As part of My Town My Future, residents of Middlesbrough got the chance to take part in fun workshops to tell their stories about the town.
Working with Mark Williams, a photography tutor from Middlesbrough Community Learning, creative writing tutor Natalie Scott, and curators from Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art, they learned how to take inspirational photographs and write creative stories, poems, and narratives about what Middlesbrough means to them.
A group of adults from Teesside Ability Support Centre told their stories as part of My Town, My Future, as the centre celebrated its 50th year of providing adults with differing needs with life skills.
We’re delighted to announce that the My Town, My Future exhibition of photos and writing will be at the Dorman Museum until June 3rd!
