2012 was a big year for us here at Great North Run Culture. We’re incredibly proud of our programme which included new commissions from Mark Wallinger, Douglas Gordon, Dan Holdsworth, Kate Fox and Reuben Henry & Karin Kihlberg.

We want to say a huge thanks to the 663,000 of you who saw our exhibitions and came to our programme of events, workshops, family activities and artist talks.
