A voice for culture

We are a democratic voice for culture in Newcastle. We want to give everyone who lives and works here, the opportunity to have their say in shaping the cultural future of the city.


Our plans

Culture is critical to the success of our local economy; it enhances our communities and neighbourhoods and it supports the wellbeing of our residents.

We believe everyone should have access to culture and the chance to experience its benefits – regardless of age, background or experience.

Our plans and ambitions fall under six key themes; inclusion, prosperity, opportunity, place, wellbeing and climate.
