Newcastle City Council’s Arts Team exists to encourage, support and facilitate participation in high-quality creative activities by people who, for a variety of reasons, might not otherwise have that opportunity. Projects and programmes are concentrated in those areas of the city where there is least provision or where the provision that does exist is unsuitable for, or does not meet the needs of, a significant proportion of the resident population – children and young people, for example, or vulnerable older people, or people for whom English is a second language. Projects are designed and developed with the participants to ensure that they reflect the rich cultural heritage of the city’s many communities and the creative skills and ambitions of the participants. All projects are led by at least one professional artist.
