We love art
We have several booming cultural hubs offering a unique insight into England’s artistic identity.
From Gateshead’s Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art to the ‘living’ Beamish Museum, these creative institutions have transformed the North East’s cultural landscape. In fact, the Arts Council’s Taking Part survey has shown that engagement with visual art in the northeast is among the highest in the country. Perhaps this goes some of the ways to explain why our region has some of the best galleries in the UK!
