I founded 'Conny' in 2017 with fellow North-East artist Ellen Ranson. Conny aims to utilise spaces available across Consett, County Durham to host exciting free art events that engage the community.
Reacting to city centric arts facilities and funding we wanted to organise and elevate a creative community that existed without the 'necessity' of a creative spacial epicentre i.e a gallery / museum.
We are interested in relationships between commercial, heritage and contemporary art and building diverse intergenerational conversations through events about County Durham.
