The many individuals who have contributed their experience and assistance

“(Tea) is seen to contribute to the cultural life of the region and beyond, creating ambitious visual arts projects which involve a wide range of audiences...(and also to) raising the profile and broadening the definition of public art.”  

Emma Anderson, currently Manager, North West Museums Hub



“The group has pioneered inter-disciplinary collaborative practice of a very high quality particularly through their generation of process based work which offers powerful possibilities of participation both for non-arts professionals as well as a wider public”

Paula Brown, (One time) Principal Combined Arts Officer, London Arts Board in Low Tide by Jeni Walwin



“What they (Tea) have often done is to draw material from people and re-present it to them in ways which change how they perceive it.”
