GemArts East by North East

East by North East is a Youth Music funded project led by GemArts and working in partnership with the Sage Gateshead, Newcastle City Council, CHAT Trust, Success4All, North Benwell Youth Project, Excelsior Academy, Linhope PRU and Spice FM.

Over the past 2 years, the project provided high quality music making opportunities for 120 young people from the BAME, refugee, asylum seeker and wider communities, based in the West and East end of Newcastle.

This project also focused on further developing the skills of local music leaders to meet the demands of culturally diverse communities, as well as using music as a creative intervention to address social issues.
