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.
Reaching Out Festival Takeover
Kick off your Summer holidays right with Reaching Out Takeover Festival; a fun, free afternoon for young people full of colourful, creative activities with a festival vibe. Expect live music, theatre performances, drop in workshops with artists, and things to see, do and experience.
This event also showcases artworks made by groups of young people around Newcastle who have been working with artists, exploring their identity, the world around them and experimenting with different art forms.
There will also be the opportunity for you to find out about Reaching Out Festival and how you can sign up to get involved in the future. And if that wasn’t enough….well we’ve also got free food on offer.
So what are you waiting for?! Reach Out, come along and enjoy the festival!

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).
