Hartlepool Borough Council are about to bring one of the most high-profile pieces of art work that we've ever seen to Hartlepool. From 20th - 30th August we are bringing Luke Jerram's ‘In Memoriam' to Seaton Carew. This will be situated on the beach and we are looking for volunteers to support its installation.

The installation is a giant temporary memorial for the public to visit and remember all those we have lost from the COVID-19 pandemic and is made up of 130 flags, made from NHS bedsheets. You can read more here: https://memoriamartwork.com/about/

We are looking for a crew of people to support the installation once it is goes 'Live' to positively engage with people and to be our eyes and ears on the ground. Training and support will be given and onsite visits will be scheduled to ensure you are content with your role. The pattern of work can be negotiated however full or half days between the hours of 9.30am and 5.30pm would be preferred.
