Coming soon: team bios
Curated by FreeStyle, Out and About was only possible because of the input and contributions of other grass-roots community work in Middlesbrough.
The pilot pack features work by Ste Corner and Sam Durant from Big Kids, mindfulness tips by Rebbeca Schubert, nature and foraging ideas from Lucy Cuzzocrea, digital elements by Daniel Howitt, nuggets of local history from Morbid and facilitation by Andy Falconer. The second map also includes contributions
from Athene Wherrett, Sam Fletcher and Emily Treadgold.
Several community groups will be giving away physical copies of the packs. Pop into The Exchange in Hill Street Centre if you’d like a resource pack. And as this collection of resources grows we’ll have more collaborators to tell you about.
