Creative Designer on Board for Shildon in Motion

posted 13 Oct 2020, 06:48 by Daniel Potts

Greenfield Arts are delighted to welcome Sally Pilkington on board as part of the Shildon in Motion team  to help realise the design for the Shildon station platform as the project reaches the final stages.

Shildon in Motion is an exciting project that will realise a new artistic gateway at Shildon Station.  The new artwork is now in the final stages of the design process and will bring together a legacy of research and aspiration informed by the people of Shildon reflecting individual stories and the significant heritage of the town, past, present and future.

Sally has previously worked alongside Greenfield Arts developing creative designs and bringing a fresh new look to communications.  This is something that is sure to shine through the work at Shildon station and we are excited to share the final results.

Katy Milne, Creative Director at Greenfield Arts is looking forward to the final chapter and the unveiling of the project’s outcome, reminding all who visit the station of the past, present and future possibilities. “It has been a pleasure to work within the Shildon Community and hear from the many voices that will inform the project, thank you to all who have contributed to this valuable project”

Although the current climate has meant there has been limited face-to-face opportunities recently, the team have been working behind the scenes to keep on-track.

The project is supported by Northern Heartlands, one of the sixteen Great Place Schemes in England, funded by National Lottery Heritage Fund and Arts Council England and Bishop Rail Community Partnership.
