Meet Culture Bridge

What is Culture Bridge North East?

Culture Bridge North East’s vision is that everyone growing up in our region should have a childhood rich with arts and culture. We believe that arts and cultural education is not only the spark that creates the artists, performers, makers and curators of the future, but that it is essential for children’s quality of life. Taking part in excellent cultural education enables children to make meaning, discover connections with others, find and develop their unique talents, and build the confidence, resilience and transferable skills that set them up for life. Culture Bridge North East collaborates with organisations across the North East and beyond to champion culture and the arts as vital parts of childhood.

Arts Council England funds 10 Bridges across England, all of which are tasked with the strategic development of arts and cultural education by, with and for children and young people. Culture Bridge North East is managed by Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums and based at the Discovery Museum in Newcastle.
