Charlotte Dack, Area Manager, Gateshead and Sunderland
As Area Manager for Sunderland and Gateshead, I help to build collaborative relationships between the cultural and education sectors through the development of the Local Cultural Education Partnerships.
I’m also Culture Bridge North East’s lead on our schools programme which incorporates the Cultural Leaders in Education Programme, and the EQiPP Programme (Exploring Quality in Peer Practice), as well as our CPD courses and events.
I began my career as a children’s librarian in Middlesbrough, then worked as Regional Learning Officer for the North East Museums Hub. Over the last 10 years, I have worked 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.
In my spare time I like to go to concerts, from opera to pop; I love any type of live music. I also sing in choirs and enjoy spending time with friends and family. As a mum of a toddler, I'm currently exploring all the great early years provision in the local cultural sector, and having lots of fun!
