Connecting young people in Newcastle with high quality cultural experiences and opportunities

Glow, Newcastle is a brand new organisation that has grown out of Newcastle Cultural Education Partnership.

We want to ensure that children and young people aged 0-25 in Newcastle have access to high quality cultural opportunities in school and outside school. We want all children and young people in Newcastle to contribute to and feel ownership of our city’s culture.

We work in partnership with the city’s education sector and with a range of other public and voluntary sector partners to ensure children and young people  develop and share their creativity within and beyond their communities.

Glow, Newcastle provides teacher and practitioner CPD to seed long-term, self-sustaining cultural engagement and promote personal wellbeing.  We advocate for high quality cultural education in schools, and run programmes which encourage children to see a career in creative practice or the cultural industries as a real and viable opportunity, irrespective of personal background or economic status.

Culture is something we all make and share.  Our partnerships  celebrate diversity and inclusion, enriching cultural experiences for all young people and their communities.
