As an arts charity, we are currently developing a new 10-year strategy to guide our work from 2025 to 2035. Our aim is to continue to promote cinema screenings and live performances in rural and deprived communities along with supporting a programme of community engagement that will bring added value and benefits to community life through various creative activities.

However, the past few years have been challenging due to the pandemic, cost of living crisis, and high inflation, leading to a decrease in available funding. Competition is high and nearly all funds are over-subscribed.

As a valued audience member and participant in our activities, we need your help to ensure our funding applications reflect the value we bring to your community. By completing a short survey, you can help us demonstrate the impact of our activities and the need for continued support in bringing culture to rural or deprived areas across the North East.

Your input could make all the difference in securing funding and ensuring our work can continue to benefit you and the wider community.

Thank you in advance for your support.
