Family Arts Network Sunderland is a collaborative project involving arts and culture organisations across the city, alongside non arts organisations that work with families. They come together as a Network to promote family friendly arts activity and spaces for families in Sunderland, making it a great place for families to have fun and feel safe. They also work closely with the organisation More than Grandparents which is run by and for kinship carers and their families.
The aim is to increase the involvement of local families in creative activities, from craft to music to performing arts, and make the experience of going to a family event in Sunderland a fantastic one!
Family Arts Network Sunderland worked with us on our third cookbook, Secret Dishes From Around the World 3. They commissioned the artist Hannah Rich to work alongside a group of talented creatives aged from 18 months to 11 years old to create a mixed-media artwork for the project.
