Culture Strategy

Culture in Gateshead is defined as:

Arts, artists, architecture, community centres, college, concert halls, creative industries, design, galleries, heritage, leisure centres, libraries, museums, musicians, open spaces, parks, people, places of worship, public art, schools, sports clubs, sporting events and venues, theatres, universities, voluntary sector, volunteers

The Strategy is for:

  • Gateshead - making Gateshead a great place for culture
  • Gateshead Council - a framework for making strategic and investment decisions
  • All organisations who contribute to the cultural offer in Gateshead and the North East

The strategy sets out our big ambitions in order to achieve our cultural outcomes for Gateshead. Our big goals, both short term and longer term, are described in the themes of Creative Economy and Creative Communities.

We will work together through Gateshead's Culture Forum to deliver our ambitions and goals
