Our Projects


#Inspiredby (2019 – 2022) Newcastle Cultural Education Partnership (NCEP) brought together artists and cultural organisations with individual schools and Multi-Academy Trusts in Newcastle upon Tyne, to co-create inspirational projects with children and young people.

Children from 22 schools across Newcastle, including 3 learning Trusts participated in #Inspiredby, working with local artists in collaboration with their teachers

Our #InspiredBy project led by Sue Loughlin really boosted teacher confidence and raised the profile of art again in school.  It contributed hugely to teacher wellbeing, and each teacher used their learning from Sue’s CPD sessions to co-create a sculpture with their class as a result.” Ashley McCluskey, Kingston Park Primary School in partnership with Sue Loughlin

I felt more confident after my session as I accomplished my goal of saying my line. I loved it.” pupil at Grange First School

I think the exciting thing is all the schools went off on a different journey. We explored Pop Art, which the children absolutely loved. We went to the Hatton Gallery which we hadn’t been to before, so now we have a relationship with them and we’ll go back regularly.Liz Simpson, Knop Law Primary School in partnership with John Quinn.

The children in the intervention group were so excited about how it went for them and the teachers were really pleased. Liz Bamber, Brunton First School, in partnership with Unfolding Theatre.

I really liked No Voice Too Small they were so kind and inspiring. When the video got recorded I was really shy but they were all really happy and didn’t do a face at me so I carried on and luckily did it! I really enjoyed it and liked it.Y4 child at Gosforth Park Primary School.
