Festival of Thrift celebrates sustainable living through creative cooperation and aims to create opportunities to demonstrate the value of the arts in building resilient & sustainable creative communities. Invited artists will engage with and draw out the specific narratives of Redcar & Cleveland, placing them into a wider national context.
