Your Art is a scheme that is designed to create more opportunities for people in local community groups based in our wards to get involved in arts and culture.

Throughout our programme, our Your Art projects and activities have been a complete success. We saw many different events take place around Sunderland and South Tyneside, lots of artwork created and new creative groups emerge that were financially supported by Your Art.

Your Art has made an impact in local communities and has allowed many people to participate in events, lead groups and help to produce and create their own artistic work. Your Art wants to create a lasting artistic legacy in Sunderland and South Tyneside and by working with artists and communities in our wards, we have been able to do this.

Some of the projects were Garden redesigning, Digital Image Design, Ukulele Practice, local Choirs, Glass Fusing workshops, an Environmental Art Project with school children and much more. Your Art is also available for many different ages, groups and schools. These projects took place through workshops and sessions over a number of weeks and saw great popularity in our wards.
