The Network programme

We support community cohesion and act as a catalyst for innovative and new ideas

We fuse creativity with health and wellbeing and aim to create a healthier, happier and more equal society.

The Network Programme supports a broad range of people who live, work or study on Tyneside. We develop collaborative projects with partners that challenge the expected heritage experience inside and out of our venues in new and exciting ways.  We support community cohesion and act as a catalyst for innovative and new ideas.
