Shildon in Motion started in July 2019 with funding from Northern Heartlands. The aim was to create a vibrant welcome to Shildon Station.

The project, led by Katy Milne of Greenfield Arts and brought to life by artists Nicola Golightly and Sally Pilkington demonstrates true community collaboration.

Nicola and Katy visited a number of public venues around Shildon and met with people to gather perspectives about Shildon’s past, present and future. The conversations then informed the projects design and translated into new artwork across the station to celebrate and highlight the extraordinary aspects of Shildon and its people.

You can now see the fantastic bright and uplifting artwork around the station.
