Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art presents a week of conversations, workshops and site visits organised with Broadcasting the Archive in collaboration with Emily Hesse from New Linthorpe. These events consider questions surrounding housing, women’s rights, inequality, regeneration, and other topics of local urgency.

Broadcasting the Archive is a project that activates the Arte Útil archive, which consists of case studies of ‘useful art’, or art as a tool or device. Curators Gemma Medina and Alessandra Saviotti have been delivering a programme of events in partnership with various art organisations to ensure that the Arte Útil archive is a source of inspiration for both art professionals and all other potential users aiming to contribute to social change.

During their residency in Middlesbrough, Medina and Saviotti work with local people to explore the relevance of the Arte Útil archive in this context. The week begins on Tuesday 25 October with a reflection on Arte Útil. Wednesday’s sessions examine themes associated with women’s rights, particularly what it is to be a woman in Middlesbrough. On Thursday, the focus shifts to housing, especially problems related to accommodation for disenfranchised groups in Teesside. The week culminates on Friday with a trip to Liverpool to engage with participants in the Granby Four Streets project, an example of a creative response to issues in a community.
