I’m looking forward to Middlesbrough Art Weekender running 4 – 7 October 2018 and thanks to The Auxiliary and Lydia Catterall for an event in Darlington Markets on Saturday 4 August 2018 which attracted artists from Darlington, Tees Valley and the region.   People came together for discussion, to share ideas and thinking around the visual arts and enjoyed some of the great produce available in the Market Hall.   The Auxiliary have been developing programme across the Tees Valley from their Stockton base, including international residencies and exchanges, and it was great to see blimey! and Navigator North contributing to the event in the Market Hall.
