Collaboration Workshop

 Friday 19th August 2022

The collaboration workshop between Saabat Gallery, Together Middlesbrough & Cleveland and Kirkleatham museum ran by Tapestry artist Jane Riley.

South Bank Carnival

At the south bank carnival on the 21st of August 2022, the Saabat gallery presented itself in its usual unique fashion, humbly, creatively and with great passion for the local community.

This event was organized by “The Open Well”, local churches, business, and the people of south bank.

It was a demonstration of collaboration of the highest order by the amazing people of south bank. This was the most joyous occasion of people working together for a long time. The event exceeded everyone’s expectations and we look forward to the next community event.

It’s been a long time coming, for a community that is very often left behind, since the decline of industry and disintegration of communities and rehousing.

We share the view with all our fellow south bankers that we deserve the best. We hope to inform those who are in power to recognise that smaller organisations working together can lead the way of change to a better future for coming generation.
