Public Engagement

Engaging the public with culture is our shared purpose and also the single biggest challenge and opportunity we face as a partnership.

Public Engagement - or Audience Development -  is one of the main areas where we collaborate. Our focus is to help build relationships with audiences, encourage people to engage with culture and also to encourage people to cross thresholds and try different types of activities and cutlural forms.  We have undertaken years of research and test and learn projects to develop our collective approaches and have two major initiatives running.  Find our more below.

We also share knowledge and skills across Learning and Participation, Development and Creative Programming.

Public Engagement is all about our audiences, making sure that we are building strong and lasting relationships and facilitating their involvement in a wide range of quality cultural experiences.

Our collaboration focuses on how to strengthen partnerships, build our knowledge and share experiences to enhance the quality of learning and participation across the diversity of cultural forms that we represent.

City of Dreams is a 10 year collective ambition to engage children and young people under 25 in Newcastle and Gateshead in rich cultural experiences and have lasting positive impact on their lives.

We share approaches, plans and experience of fundraising, donors and other development issues, as well as identifying ways to support NGCV's collaborative projects, work and campaigns.
