Photographer: Colin Davison © Great North Run Culture
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.

I’ve written a new interactive family show based on my experience of being Great North Run Poet in Residence last year. I went along to the parkrun in Newcastle recently to chat to family runners about running and writing.

I did several workshops with children aged ten to eighteen in Newcastle and Manchester to prepare to write the show and realised some things that would never have struck me without getting to chat to them, and do some poetry and performance games around ideas of health and exercise.

I kept being astounded by things I found out when I was training for the Great North Run last year and writing poems about the process.
