This exhibition consists of a collaboration of over 20 artists, which worked to a brief of celebrating Middlesbrough and it’s people.
“Middlesbrough was never pretty
We had mining industries, until the 80s
We had strong iron and steel industries until the 80s
We had a thriving ship building areas and ports until the 80s
All that has gone but
We still have an instinct for survival.
We still have the ability to rise above all problems.
We still have a strong, vocal and proud working class population.
We have dignity, happiness and pride
We still have a town full of talent.
Boro is not pretty but can be very beautiful
Come to the Heritage Gallery to see for yourself.”
