WMDJ is a multi-media collaborative group bringing together different artistic disciplines to create new works for exhibitions, print publications, theatre, CD’s and DVD’s. The two key figures in the collaborative are composer/producer Steve Thompson and poet/playwright Tom Kelly. They are joined from time to time by other artistes from a range of disciplines.
The work continues and much of it can be experienced on this site. You will find in these pages finished and unfinished works. The common WMDJ theme is a commentary on today’s society and how it sadly reflects the ills of past societies.
Kelly and Thompson, separately and collaboratively have a long lineage of work relating to the North-East of England. The works on these pages represent themes close to their hearts. This is not a career move. They mean it.
