A new exhibition has opened at Middlesbrough’s Gallery TS1 as part of the on-going Tour De Yorkshire festivities.

The exhibition, which features paintings, sketches, and jewellery inspired by the cycling event is on display until June for people to admire and purchase.

The gallery has long been known for linking exhibitions with town-related events, using it as an opportunity for local talent to showcase their artistic side, with all forms of art catered for, from ceramic and glassware to fabrics and prints.

Tour de Yorkshire is the latest local event to be given the gallery treatment, with many works of art incorporating cycling and the north east landscape, from the Transporter Bridge and Temenos to the North Yorkshire moors, linking cycling to the history of Middlesbrough and the north.

Gail Wright, one of the artists involved in the exhibition, has been a member of Gallery TS1 for almost seven years, and has made jewellery for almost forty, though not always professionally, and has several pieces of handcrafted jewellery showcased as part of the exhibition.

Although her preferred method of crafting jewellery involves dichroic glass, her Tour de Yorkshire pieces are mainly metal and enamel paint to tie in with the event’s colour scheme.

“It’s an unusual subject to fit into jewellery,” she told me.

“Jewellery is not usually about things like cycling. I think what people were intrigued by was that somebody had made jewellery based on bicycles.”

Her handcrafted necklaces incorporate the blue and yellow cycling theme of Tour De Yorkshire to produce an unusual but intriguing mix of sports and meticulously crafted works of art.

Of course, although jewellery making can be a challenging task, Ms Wright highlighted the therapeutic element of the process, as well as explaining that to make a truly stunning piece, uniqueness is key.

“It depends on whether you’re set on making works of art or fulfil a difficult commission, or just occupying your time. It’s important for people to reach out and make something very unique with every piece you do.”

In recent years, due in part to the popularity of sites such as Etsy, which allow people to sell their handmade items, arts and crafts have become more commonplace, with many people using the websites as an opportunity to make extra money out of a hobby they greatly enjoy.

Etsy currently has over 35 million handmade products for people to peruse and buy, making it more difficult for galleries to compete when it comes to putting crafts on the market.

However, exhibitions such as this continue to prove popular with local people as they reinforce the North East’s pride in their heritage and history.

In the past Ms Wright has worked on many well-known animated films such as The Snowman, before turning her hobby of artistry into a chance to showcase and sell her talents along with many other members of the gallery over the past few years.

The exhibition will be open until the first week of June, when another enticing display will take its place, so be sure you don’t miss out on a visit to the gallery this month!

Teesside University rises in the ranks of excellent LGBT employers

Teesside University was recently named one of the top 100 employers in Britain for LGBT members of staff.

The award was given by the charity Stonewall, which promotes equality and diversity across all sexualities and genders.

Teesside University was named the 44th best employer for LGBT staff members in 2016, a jump from 111th position in the previous year.

Dr Joan Heggie, a research fellow at the university, is chair of the university’s LGBT focus group, which aims to develop a equal and non-discriminatory workplace for all members of staff at the university, regardless of their sexuality or gender identity.

“Members of staff volunteer, and contribute to ensuring the university is a place where LGBT people can work and study in the most effective manner.

Although Dr Heggie has been a member of the focus group for many years, she highlighted the influx of new faces and views in recent years.

“People from different departments, with different issues and different views come together around a table, and that’s great because we’re more representative of the staff and students here at the university.

“We’ve addressed the issues that Stonewall have raised over time, about inclusiveness and visible tolerance and acceptance of LGBT staff. By saying ‘we want you, we want your enthusiasm. You can come here without any fear of harassment or of having to hide who you are’, we’re encouraging confidence and saying that your identity won’t hold you back.”

Despite great strides in recent years towards equality (such as the Equality Act and Gender Recognition Act) many LGBT people still face ridicule for who they are.

A recent government report into Transgender Equality cited research by the National Union of Students (NUS), which found that transgender students were twice as likely as lesbian, gay, and bisexual students to have experienced harassment and physical assault on a university campus.

The Teesside University LGBT focus group liaises with student representatives to ensure that everybody can come to university proud of who they are, and without the prospect of being bullied due to their identity.

“As the momentum for policy reviews and legal responsibilities has built, the group has focused more on reviewing what we can do and evidence it much better. That has led to the huge jump from 111 to 44 in just one year.

“With regards to the training of staff, and the opportunity to be trained as harassment advisers, it has all led to us being able to show the trust’s work more than we have been able to do in the past.”

Stonewall charity works with a huge number of businesses and various sectors of the employment industry to ensure no discrimination not only in the hiring process, but also in the day to day environments of those industries.

I recently interviewed Dr Heggie to discuss the prestigious award and what it means for the university. Listen to what she had to say below:

Summer Blockbusters 2016 – Part 1

Image

Summer blockbuster season is here.

Stretching from March through to August, we have handpicked some of the most anticipated films that are due to grace multiplexes this Summer.  And what a pivotal summer it is set to be too.

Here’s what treats are lined up. Please note, we’ve gone with UK release dates, for the purposes of this feature.

The Conjuring 2: The Enfield Poltergeist (17 June, 2016)

It is that time again, James Wan returns to our screens to deliver himself as the ultimate master of horror, and to a franchise he started last June with “The Conjuring 2: The Enfield Poltergeist.” Reprising their roles, Oscar nominee Vera Farmiga (“Orphan,” TV’s “Bates Motel”) and Patrick Wilson (the “Insidious” franchise), star as paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren, who, travel to North London to investigate a house disturbed by malicious spirits.

The Hollywood Reporter revealed in November (2015) that the sequel’s subtitle, “The Conjuring 2: The Enfield Poltergeist” is anticipated to blow up just as its predecessor did, and so has given the horror a prime location in summer release real estate.

However, that being said, it would be foolish not to acknowledge the stigma that surrounds sequels; will it ever be as good as the original?

But, do not fret. When talking to CBR in April, Wan spoke about just that problem –

“I thought it might be a little bit of a cake walk, but that was not the case at all. It was difficult. I really did put a lot of pressure on myself to try and live up to how beloved the first film is. There was this constant shadow of the first film just hovering over me throughout the entire production. And I actually think that’s a good thing to have that pressure behind you because that just means I wouldn’t be complacent, I wouldn’t phone it in. It’s more intimate for me. It’s more personal for me and I wanted to make sure that I worked very hard to not let all of the people around me down.”

The film is scheduled to be released in the United Kingdom on June 17, 2016 by Warner Bros. Pictures and New Line Cinema.

The Purge: Election Year (July 15, 2016)

Fans of Jason Blum’s “Purge” will be pleased to know that it is time for the annual Purge once again. This time, “Election Year.”

For those who do not know, here is a little overview. In 2022, “The New Founding Fathers of America” have established a new totalitarian government and police state that has give authorisation something called “The Purge”. The night, which occurs March 21 to 22 – 7 pm until 7 am – sees all crime, including rape, murder and assault legal and all police, fire and medical services unavailable. And now, the “Election Year” is the next chapter to follow.

The near-future threequel enters a political realm where we see presidential candidate Charlene ‘Charlie’ Roan (Elizabeth Mitchell), the front runner in the next election, pledging to eliminate “The Annual Purge” after loosing her family due to sadistic murders. We also see the return of  Leo Barnes (Frank Grillo) from “The Purge 2″, now a police sergeant who becomes Mrs Roan’s personal protection officer.

But, before I give anything more away, see below for the official trailer.

The film is scheduled to be released in the United Kingdom on July 15, 2016 by Universal Pictures and Blumhouse Productions.

Finding Dory (July 29, 2016)

Hallelujah, it is here. The long overdue “Nemo” sequel is actually here! Yes, “Finding Dory” is set to hit our screens this Summer.

Thirteen year after the release of “Finding Nemo,” director Andrew Stanton and producer Lindsey Collins reunite to bring us the most anticipated Pixar Animations of the decade.

Ellen DeGeneres and Albert Brooks reprises their roles as Dory ad Marlin, while Diane Keaton (The Godfather, Something’s Gotta Give) and Eugene Levy (the “American Pie” films) offer their voices to Dory’s parents, Jenny and Charlie.

Taking place six months after “Finding Nemo,” the sequel’s plot follows Dory as she discovers that she was born and raised in a marine life institute prior to being released into the ocean. Accompanied throughout with Nemo and Marlin by her side, we are introduced to more loveable characters; Bailey (Beluga Whale), Destiny (Whale Shark) and Hank (Octopus).

Following a long campaign for a sequel on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” DeGeneres announced:

“I have waited for this day for a long, long, long, long, long, long time. I’m not mad it took this long. I know the people at Pixar were busy creating Toy Story 16. But the time they took was worth it. The script is fantastic. And it has everything I loved about the first one: It’s got a lot of heart, it’s really funny, and the best part is—it’s got a lot more Dory.”

DeGeneres added that she found the scrip to be warm, hilarious and “everything you want it to be,” and we can not wait to see it.

The film is scheduled to be released in the United Kingdom on July 29, 2016 by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures and Pixar Animation Studios.

Should you phone an ambulance for a broken finger?

Image

The North East ambulance service has launched a new campaign urging the public to think before dialling 999.

The public plea is being made following an unprecedented period of severe pressure lasting 19 weeks, in which responses to potentially life-threatening calls fell below the national standard of eight minutes or faster to 75% of Red incidents.

The campaign features three hard-hitting messages aimed at making people stop and think before dialling 999 for an emergency ambulance. These are:

  • You wouldn’t call the fire service to blow out a candle;
  • You wouldn’t call the coastguard if you fell in a puddle; and
  • We risk our lives to save yours.

Accompanying all three messages is a reminder to call 111 when an incident is less urgent than 999. The 111 number is a Freephone number that is staffed 24 hour a day, seven days a week, a service people don’t realise is available often.

Director of communications in the North East ambulance service Mark Cotton explains the campaign.

As well as 111, members of the public are asked to try and use alternative services, such as their local GP, pharmacist or walk-in centre where possible. To read more on the campaign you can visit the NHS website here.

Charity tackles Middlesbrough’s addiction problems-through flower arranging

Image

 

Dot Turton, CEO of Hope North East

Dot Turton, CEO of Hope North East

 

A TEESSIDE charity is taking a creative approach to tackling Middlesbrough’s drug and alcohol problems.

Hope North East, based on Marton Road are offering a wide range of creative activities including flower arranging, financial advice, football sessions and complimentary therapy, to help those in the recovery phase of addiction.

The team at Hope North East are mostly in recovery themselves or have experience of addiction through family members.

This means that they have the experience and the empathy required to guide their members through the challenging journey.

They recently abseiled off the Transporter Bridge as a group and often do activities to push people out of their comfort zone and given them a sense of achievement.

Some of the members have put together a video to give insight into their experiences with addiction.

When people come to the charity they may have spent the majority of their adult life with addiction issues, some have lost everything including their homes and families.

Middlesbrough has well documented issues with drugs and alcohol and a recent article published by the BBC suggested that the drug use in Teesside is higher than some major European cities.

An article from 2012, published in the Gazette, claimed that one in 12 children in Middlesbrough were living with parents addicted to drugs or alcohol.

Louis Theroux also produced a documentary called Drinking to Oblivion,  looking at the issues around addiction and how challenging it can be for those sufferers and their families and friends.

Dot Turton, is the CEO of charity Hope North East and wants to challenge the negative stereotypes around addiction and explained that it can affect any of us ay any time.

Dot said: “we get people from all walks of life.

“Addiction has no boundaries. There is no typical social class or community.

“Addiction is an equal opportunities condition.” she added.

Many of the activities that are organised at Hope North East are to increase feelings of self-worth, positivity and gratitude for those in recovery.

September is International Recovery Month and the team are organising lots of events in Middlesbrough throughout 2016 and beyond. They will be holding the Middlesbrough Recovery Walk in September, the first one took place last year.

They will be continuing to train members in flower arranging and will turn this into  a social enterprise providing flowers for weddings and occasions in Middlesbrough.

There are also plans to open a dry bar and restaurant on Linthorpe Road, which will have live music and dancing to enable people to enjoy an alcohol free night out.

As well as this there is a community garden at Beechwood, which will provide a creative space for the whole community to use for gardening, learning and socialising.

The idea behind this is to challenge the stereotypes that people have about those in recovery or addiction and show the positive impact they can have on society.

Dot said: “They are not bad people trying to be good. They are sick people trying to get well.

“Losing everything in some cases is what drives them to change.”

Many of the members have had extremely difficult experiences, which may have led them to addiction.

Dot said: “Lots of people have had life experiences that I hope I never have to imagine.

“You can understand why they choose to self-medicate to make those feelings go away.”

She added: ” What we provide here is structure because when somebody’s been in active addiction for most of their adult life, chaos is

normal.

“It is an inspirational model; people who’ve been there, helping people who want to get there.”

Dot feels she has the best job in the world and told us about her most rewarding moments.

She said: “Seeing people make new lives for themselves, seeing people get a job get a nice home, seeing people get their family back; it’s a great place to be.

“There’s no greater experience than sharing those moments with somebody.”

Dot also has some very challenging parts of her role dealing with addiction.

The CEO explained: ” It’s a cruel illness.

“It’s a life or death illness and it is a terminal illness if people don’t change.

“That’s frustrating, its hard.”

THE JOY FORMIDABLE front-woman Rhiannon Bryan (photo by Devin Ferrell)

THE JOY FORMIDABLE are one of the most underrated British bands of the past few years.

They released their third and latest studio album Hitch on March 25th and are currently on tour to promote it.

Tside spoke to front-woman Rhiannon ‘Bitzy’ Bryan about all live albums, nights out and the future.

Before the UK tour you headed out to the USA for a few shows – how was was that? 

“We are really enjoying being back on the road. It has been a whirlwind start to the year. UK, South America and USA. We have just arrived back in Britain (when the interview took place) but we are feeling great – bit jetlagged but excited to be playing live again!”

There are 12 UK dates on this tour – where are you most excited to be playing? 

“We are looking forward to it all. It will be great to see Leeds and Norwich again, lots of fun memories from those cities and of course our ‘hometown’ show in Wrexham for Focus Wales. That [Focus Wales] is a great festival – we are so glad to see it thriving!”

You played Newcastle’s Think Tank? on Saturday – do you have any other memories of the city?

“I have a hazy one of Matt dancing in a cage after our last show up there! We have had some good nights out in Newcastle. If the kittiwakes are in town I’ll be paying them a visit by the quayside.”

The Joy Formidable now have three albums including latest ‘Hitch’ – what has the setlist been like?

“We will definitely be playing tracks off the new record, but also material from The Big Roar, Wolfs Law and a few things in between.”

Are there any favourites of your own that will definitely make the setlist?

“I have really been enjoying playing The Brook acoustically. It is different to the album version, but lots of space for the vocal and melody. I still get a kick out of playing The Greatest Light Is the Greatest Shade – I can’t imagine a set without it.”

What is the plan for The Joy Formidable post-tour?

“We are not sure when it is going to end to be honest. We wrap up in the UK in two weeks and go straight into festival season and the second leg of our USA/Canada tour. We do want to record a live album at some point, so we will be scheduling that soon!”

This has been an absolute pleasure – any final words?

“Thank you for the questions! And thanks for a great show in Newcastle!”

Tside talk to Sundara Karma

Screen Shot 2016-05-06 at 13.54.21

SUNDARA KARMA have a tour and festival slots coming up

SUNDARA KARMA have rocketed to stardom over the past year. Bringing out two EPs and several singles, the Berkshire four piece are heading back out on tour before a string of festival appearances over summer.

TSide spoke to front man Oscar Pollock about what is happening right now with the band.

The last time Sundara Karma played Newcastle it was at Think Tank? and it sold out – are you expecting the Cluny to be the same?

“I don’t know, I guess so…we are expecting it to be really fun. I think the Newcastle crowd will be pretty up for it like they were last time. Well, I hope so.”

When you say the crowd will be up for it, do you like seeing people going mad or just enjoying the music?

“Erm, yawning is what you don’t want to see. I like to see people engaging and to see someone’s face rather that seeing them looking at their phone.”

The Newcastle show is quite early on in the tour unlike last time, will this change the way you play?

“It is the first or second, I’m not quite sure. It means we will be fresher and less hungover really!”

Loveblood is your new single, but it came out originally in 2015 – why has it been re-released as a single?

“I think we put the song out a year ago now. We are in a different position now and we want a lot more people to hear it. Our fan base has grown a lot more in a year and by putting it out now it will reach more people.”

Speaking of your fan base growing, what do you expect your crowds to be like at upcoming festivals?

“You never know. We did festivals last year and were surprised by the amount of people that came last year so you can only hope it will be the same or slightly more. We are doing Glastonbury for the first time this year and the main stage at Reading and Leeds. We have a lot of friends and a solid following around Reading so we are not too worried about that.”

In an interview you said: “People get a bit annoyed because we’re not playing all of the old songs, but the best way of telling if a track has gone down well is at a show, if people move to it” – as the gigs get bigger will you start adding the older tracks back in?

“We are kind of just playing fans favourites at the minute. Playing a bit of everything, sort of went around in a big circle.”

The EPs you have released so far are simply titled EP 1 and EP 2. Is this a theme you are carrying on?

“It is just a sheer lack of creativity I think (laughing).”

Is it just EPs and singles for now or do you have an album planned?

“Yeah we will put an album out after the summer. It is more or less done. We will do a tour, for sure. I don’t know if it will be massive though.”
