Don't shop swap

3rd October 2017 | Gareth

Thought Foundation invite you to our clothes swap party as part of our aim to protect the environment. What better way to breathe new life into your wardrobe than an environmentally friendly way? 

Saturday 7th Oct 2017 7.00-9.30pm

Tickets £3.50 Available from Thought Foundation or online here
Refreshments and wholesome home made food served from our 'Brain Food' kitchen will be on sale during the event.

How 'Don’t Shop... Swap' works*

For every garment or item you donate, you will receive a token, which entitles the bearer to exchange for another garment or item. Any remaining garments/items will be donated to a charity shop the following day. As the old saying goes...'One persons trash is another persons treasure!'

*Only garments in good condition (washed and ironed) are welcome. Please check your pockets before swapping. Shoes, jewellery and bags are also welcome.

Team thought foundation - Gareth

14th July 2017 | Gareth

We are humans behind Thought Foundation, not a generic organisation, we are a passionate social enterprise.

Meet Gareth one of our co founders and creative directors ...

With an unshakeable 'can do' attitude to life, Gareth is here to help mould the thoughts and amibitions of Thought Foundation. His background is in running an environmental organisation and he is passionate about recycling, upcycling, repurposing from the build through to the events and exhibitions. Artists fascinate him - their passion, energy, skills, creativity, their take on the world. He is hoping that our gallery will boost creativity in our region. Quality art is for all to enjoy.




Team thought foundation - Leanne

22nd June 2017 | Gareth

We thought we would give you an insight into our team at Thought Foundation so you can get a better feel for who we are. Let's start with Leanne, co-founder of TF and creative director...

she is a painter and creative. Art is in her bones and according to her, colour does something immense to her insides. She wears a great big pair of imagination goggles and loves turning nothing into something. She is passionate about encouraging quality creatives to work in the Northeast. You will find her front of house, cooking up a storm, curating exhibitions, running workshops, looking after her 2 bambinos and everything in between. She is a jolly soul with a quirky and positive outlook. One of her passions is portrait painting... she is pictured here painting one of her artworks from the Breastfeed exhibition.
