Artists are breathing life back into a Teesside landmark which had been standing empty for years.
Painters and designers are among those who have taken up temporary residence in Dundas House, an eight-storey building in Middlesbrough town centre, which was once home to hundreds of BT employees.
They are being supported by a community interest company, Navigator North, who are working with a Leeds-based charity to fund the studios.
While the search goes on for new tenants, artists have taken over some of the vast space.
The project aims to raise the profile of local artists and to help young people embark on their careers.
