At Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums we believe that everyone should have access to our exhibitions, collections and programmes.
Museums are a great resource for any community group and the possibilities to work with us are endless.
The Outreach Team at Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums work with a vast range of groups and are always looking to bring museums to life for different audiences - whether in the museums or outside at a venue to suit the group.
The team is divided up across Tyne and Wear with one assistant outreach officer in each district. We can work with any Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums' collection and any Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums' venue.
Past projects have included working with:
- looked-after young people
- young carers
- culturally diverse communities/BME communities
- older people
- residential homes for young and older people
- women's groups
- lads' and dads' groups
- young mums
- the probation service
- youth referral units
- local history groups
- disability support groups
- Deaf community groups
- homeless people's projects
- healthy living project groups
... to name a few.
If you are interested in working with us we would love to hear from you.
