Tell your story

Our workshops

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.
