Spirits of Newcastle is a project that aims to tell the stories of Newcastle locals. Artist Conor Fox worked alongside community members, conducting interviews about what Newcastle means to them – The good and the bad. Interviewees drew pictures of these two ‘Spirits’, which were turned into animations as a part of the final video.

Spirits of Newcastle was first premiered as a part of Illuminate in July of 2022. It will also be shown at James Street Plaza in Hamilton during December of 2022

Below is a selection of these videos
