This year, in addition to the Business Meeting, we are holding a 'Question Time' panel which will be compered by Professor Rose Gilroy and the panellists include our Patron John Grundy. 

Invitations have been sent out with the Newsletter.  Don't forget to reply to let us know you are coming.

Great Exhibition of the North on EC Radio

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.
