The North East is one of five regions in the UK which has been awarded funding as part of the Paul Hamlyn Foundation’s £1.47m Special Initiative called ArtWorks: Developing Practice in Participatory Settings.
BALTIC is one of 10 regional, cultural partners, working with Sunderland University to raise the standard of arts-led experiences by improving the quality and understanding of what is required from artists in participatory projects. Drawing on outcomes from subject specific focus groups, peer learning programmes and critical conversations, the initiative will work by improving the training and continuing professional development infrastructure in higher education institutions and arts organisations.
