Thrive Teesside presents Thriving Teesside. A collection of stories, poetry, photography and more from a wide range of intellectual, creative and skilled members of Teesside, one of the most deprived areas of the UK. This book was inspired by community members feeling demonised and ignored, not valued by a wider society, wanting to show their range of skills and expertise, share their thoughts and inspire others. And so Thriving Teesside was born. We hope you enjoy.
