Charlotte Dack, Area Manager, Gateshead and Sunderland
As Area Manager for Sunderland and Gateshead, I work to build collaborative relationships between the cultural and education sectors. I also help with the development of the Local Cultural Education Partnerships in those areas.
I’m also Culture Bridge North East’s lead on our CPD offer which incorporates our flagship Cultural Leaders in Education Programme, our Creative Classrooms CPD Programme for primary schools and our Secret World of Schools programme for the cultural sector as well as other CPD courses and events.
I began my career in 2000 as a Children’s Librarian, then worked as Regional Family Learning Officer for the North East Museums Hub and later went on to work in the North East voluntary sector, managing and developing large scale multi-agency projects, events and programmes with schools and early years settings, health, social care, and the cultural sector.
I joined CBNE in 2018 and developed a suite of CPD programmes and events, moving them online during the pandemic. I'm now looking forward to developing our early years CPD offer.
Working in the early years has always been my passion and specialism throughout my career and with a 4-year-old at home I now get to try out all the excellent early years provision in the region's cultural sector.
