Helping to Create a Buzz; as Newcastle University Lands PS270,000 to Boost the Creative Industries, Arts Council England Chief Executive DARREN HENLEY Explains How and Why the Region Stands to Benefit


Byline: DARREN HENLEY

RECENTLY I was lucky to see Northern Stage's homegrown thriller Get Carter. Brilliantly acted, written, directed and staged, this gritty, pacy thriller set on the streets of Newcastle was a theatrical triumph for Northern Stage's artistic director, Lorne Campbell.

Northern Stage is a great example of the artistic excellence that radiates out from here in the North East. Whether it's the quality of the collections at the Bowes Museum in County Durham; the exciting contemporary art at the BALTIC; the thrilling performances of the Royal Northern Sinfonia at Sage Gateshead; or the creative excellence of the Stockton International Riverside Festival; all are recognised for their artistic excellence, not just here in the North East, but nationally and internationally.

And then there are exciting plans for developing the centre of Sunderland led by the MAC Trust; the new Hullaballoon children's theatre in Darlington; and a real scale of ambition for South Tyneside, where The Word, the brand new centre for North East writing, is being built just a short walk from The Customs House, that other beacon of cultural excellence in South Shields.

In Northumberland, our Creative People and Places project Bait is taking top-quality arts and culture to new audiences, an achievement matched by East Durham Creates and the work The Cultural Spring is doing in Sunderland and South Tyneside.

At Arts Council England, we're absolutely committed to championing and developing both the arts and culture that is created here in the North East. That's why we invested in supporting the development of the North East Case for Culture last year - and I was very pleased to speak alongside the co-chairs, John Mowbray and Dave Budd, at its launch at Durham Castle back in the summer.

The five universities across the North East - Durham, Newcastle, Northumbria, Sunderland and Teesside - are working together with the Arts Council team in our Newcastle office and the local authorities here to help drive this plan forward.

So I was particularly thrilled to be able to announce new Arts Council investment of PS271,362 to help the North East's creative arts sector to develop new ways of working and new ideas of how to harness the region's creativity.

We're making the grant to Newcastle University as part of our Creative Local Growth Fund, which will see PS3.8 million of investment in towns and cities right across the country.

In turn, this will attract additional European funding of some PS8.4 million from the European Regional Development Fund and the European Social Fund in 2016-19, as well as Turn to Page 26 From Page 25 PS6.5 million from other sources. …
