Whether it is music, art, film, theatre, dance, digital media, exploring libraries, museums or heritage, Find Your Talent is for every child and young person, whatever their age and whatever their ability.
The Customs House Art Centre Trust is the lead partner, and the partnership is backed by North and South Tyneside’s Local Strategic Partnership.
The councils in this area serve 350,000 residents, and have cultural and natural assets with a rich heritage. Recent history is characterised by heavy industry and coalmining; its economy suffered decline in the 1970s and 1980s with resulting widespread deprivation. The partnership is passionate about the role that culture can play in improving social, economic and environmental well-being for communities.
The Customs House programme focuses on the value of cultural activity and its impact on wider social issues, and will build on international, national and local best practice.
