The Art Advance Project 2002 - 2014

In 2001 Barry founded Arts Advance, a small community arts project based in South Tyneside. Over the years, with the help of friends and volunteers, the project engaged very many local people in enjoyable arts and heritage activities. The 3-year Words From The Wise project, sponsored by the Local Heritage Initiative and Nationwide Building Society, involved over 200 older people in gathering oral and written history.
