Members who attended the Elders Council Annual General Meeting on 3 July 2014 had the opportunity to view a short film 'Energy and Commitment' showing the Elders Council at work. If you weren’t able to get to the AGM the video has now been uploaded and can be viewed by clicking here. As we said on the video, it is always difficult to describe succinctly what we do. If you are intrigued by any of the examples of work shown on the video and would like to get more involved, get in touch with us for more information.
Elders Council Board Member Halina has been putting the Elders Council on the map with the Great Exhibition of the North. Having signed up as a volunteer, she has taken the opportunity to promote the Elders Council. Halina arranged for the EC Radio Programme to run a feature on the Great North Exhibition on its June programme, and secured interviews with a number of key people including Carol Bell, Executive Director of the NewcastleGateshead Initiative and Sarah Munro, Director of the Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art. The photo shows Halina in action recording her interview with Sarah Munro.
Elders Council is also a partner in Future Homes which will feature as part of the Great Exhibition of the North with a virtual reality tour of a future home at the Core on Helix (formerly Science Central) on Bath Lane. Don't miss it.
