Building capacity within the cultural sector in Tees Valley is essential and includes:
- Building the skills base
- Increasing the number of cultural practitioners
- Engaging creative businesses
- Reaching wider audiences
This will enable the delivery of a much wider range of arts and cultural activity and underpin the City of Culture 2025 bid. Excellent work is being done in our venues and organisations such as ARC, mima, Theatre Hullabaloo, SIRF and Tees Valley Arts but all need additional resources to employ more people and manage more activity for a greater number of people and communities.
This investment will support partnership developments across art forms and cultural and private sector organisations for innovative projects such as the Great Exhibition of the North and wider programmes of work. It will support research into potential event space and infrastructure needs and examine technical skills development to improve event development capacity in Tees Valley.
