This Cultural Spring and bait Case Study share their Creative People and Places (CPP) programme working to raise participation in arts and culture on South Tyneside and Wearside.
The six-year Cultural Spring project is part of the Creative People and Places programme, initiated and funded by Arts Council England through the National Lottery. CPP works to encourage more people to take the lead in choosing, creating and taking part in art experiences.
Our Go and See programme aims to ensure that people living in our wards get the chance to experience the best arts and cultural events happening across the North East and beyond.
We work with theatres, galleries, festivals and artists to gain access to special events, back stage tours and discounted tickets for people living in our wards.
In August 2017 we worked with our sister CPP project bait (South East Northumberland) to offer people an opportunity to visit the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
