East Durham Artists' Network (EDAN) is a voluntary group of East Durham professional and amateur artists working in a wide variety of media, operating from the Art Block gallery in Seaham, close to the Byron Shopping Centre.
Formed in 2005, we are dedicated to developing the creative arts in East Durham, focusing on the diverse history, culture and interests of the area and its community, as well as hosting creative workshops.
Our artists use paint, photography, printing, writing, ceramics and textiles to tell the story of our local area by working with national and international arts organisations as well as local schools and universities, giving a voice to the next generation to encourage their interest and involvement in the arts.
We’re passionate about developing our own skills and practices as well as offering community based workshops, activities and exhibitions which aim to encourage greater understanding of and participation in arts in East Durham. Many of our workshops and groups are open to the public and our members visit schools and community facilities to reach a wider audience.
If you want to find out more call in and see us at the Art Block or contact us via our website, telephone, or Facebook.
We look forward to seeing you!
