Creative Gateshead is all about investing in our heritage and our people. It’s about giving local people the chance to enjoy a variety of creative experiences and opportunities that improve their quality of life as well as the look and feel of the borough.
Some of the things we were involved in during 2014-15 included:
- the Secret Streets exhibition which took place at St Mary’s Heritage Centre. The exhibition brought in new audiences including 3,145 visitors who saw the exhibition in February 2015.
- Brighton Avenue Primary School and Emmaville Primary School received outstanding judgements following their recent Ofsted inspection. Also, Haskel SEN School which is an independent Charedi (strictly orthodox) Jewish Special School, founded in 2013, achieved ‘Outstanding’ results across the board in their first full Ofsted inspection.
- the Happy Healthy Gateshead Project which used arts and culture to engage local people in spreading the 5 steps to mental health and wellbeing and where to get support in Gateshead.
