A life long project.
Lizzie Lovejoy is a Darlo born writer and illustrator who loves stories. They have spent their whole life listening to peoples words, and now Lizzie translates local narratives into poems, pictures and performances. Working across the length of the region, from North Shields to Scarborough, Lizzie's home is their inspiration because the North is a tale worth telling and contains so many stories worth hearing.
Lizzie was given the wonderful opportunity to respond to the Captain Boomer Whale performance/ installation on Majuba beach in Redcar. They created a spoken word piece and performed it on the seafront as a Resident Poet.
Lizzie Lovejoy is one of the Artists on Board, representing the Tees Women Poets as part of Storylines project, created by Citizen Songwriter. The project is supported by The Bishop Line, Northern Rail and Cross Country Rail.
SeaScapes Artist in Residence
In 2022 Lizzie was invited by SeaScapes to work on two different projects: Queer Shores & Seas and Interpreters. These projects explore our coastal heritage, the lives of Queer people in the area and a celebration of the history of our land.
