http://slowwalking.com is the blog for Alan Lyddiard.
Since the 1980's Alan has created many local community arts projects with people who have had little or no experience of the arts. These projects have received national and international acclaim.
"Over the years I have learned about the power of the arts to contribute to the transformation of peoples lives. The arts have taught me about leadership, team work and enabling people to be the best they can be through their involvement with creative projects."
He is currently working for the Cyrenians as Artist-in-Residence based at Elliott House Homeless Hostel in Newcastle upon Tyne.
