Culture Bridge North East Fund

The Culture Bridge North East (CBNE) fund provides grants of up to £1,500 to support collaborations between education and youth settings, arts practitioners and cultural organisations anywhere in the North East. Priority is given to projects which improve access to high quality arts provision for those who would otherwise face barriers to taking part.

CBNE Programme Manager, Clare Elliott, says: “While the grants available are small, we know teachers and artists can use these practical, manageable amounts to make great things happen, so we’re confident the fund can have a big and lasting impact on the lives of young people across the region."

Over time, the CBNE fund will grow to create a lasting foundation of arts provision for future generations of young people. It is managed by the Community Foundation for Tyne & Wear and Northumberland  

Applications for the 2021 fund are now closed.
