Created, in November 2020, in response to the letters written to the monkey by pupils from Throston Primary, Eldon Grove Academy, St Aidan’s, St Helen’s and St Teresa’s Primary Schools.
“Monkey Business is inspired by children’s perspective of Hartlepool. It explores the dimensions between hand drawings and the real world playing with the techniques from the workshop with Gyre & Gimble. The story revolves around the relationship of the Hartlepool community and Hangus, together with a simple lesson of the joy of sharing.” (Team Monkey Business, 1st Year Film, Production Design and Visual Effects and Model Making students, The Northern School of Art, Go Bananas Credits by a pupil at St Teresa’s RC Primary School)
‘Creating with the community’
Wintertide is an independent community festival which takes place in and around the streets on the Hartlepool Headland, a coastal town steeped in history, heritage, culture and folklore.
