Newbiggin Arts Centre provides creative opportunities for our local and regional communities. We organise taught classes and clubs and believe that everyone gains wellbeing and community benefits from being engaged in creative activity.
From our Front Street and Gibson Street studios Newbiggin Arts Centre provides creative and cultural opportunities for our local and wider communities. We currently have around 600 attendances per month at our fine art, craft, reading for wellbeing and photography classes and clubs. Many of our attendees are elderly and their feedback shows that many value attendance at our creative activities in terms of wellbeing and community. Our children's club is well attended with a waiting list.
In the next year we are planning development of our current offer to improve, for example our inclusion and accessibility and to offer new arts such as pottery, music, theatre and creative writing.
