Reaching Out is three years of creative events for young people in targeted areas of Newcastle upon Tyne.
The Reaching Out team will be delivering free workshops and sessions for 14-25 year olds in Newcastle and beyond. These young people will be discovering new artforms, learning new skills, and exploring their creativity — whether in visual arts and crafts, songwriting, being in a band or learning an instrument.
Look out for the Reaching Out Festival, where you’ll be able to see and hear some of the artwork and music created by young people in Newcastle. The Reaching Out Festival will be organised initially by the Reaching Out Team and eventually by the communities themselves.
The Reaching Out team is a group of young people supported by Skimstone Arts, who have come together to create exciting and fun activities for other 14-25 year olds in Newcastle.
We will be working from spaces in Blakelaw and Walker, as well as our city centre venue, to give you free music, creative writing and visual art workshops, supporting you to learn a new instrument, develop a talent and make new friends.
You absolutely don’t have to have any experience of playing instruments, singing, writing or making artwork to take part – just come along! The sessions are fun and relaxed and are there to offer you a chance to explore what you’re interested in (and we usually have biscuits).
Details of future events will appear here soon.
