bait works in partnership to support more people in South East Northumberland to create and take part in inspiring and high-quality arts experiences. All projects aim to build a stronger future for the people who live here.
bait is part of the Creative People and Places programme, initiated and funded by Arts Council England through the National Lottery. Creative People and Places is about more people taking the lead in choosing, creating and taking part in art experiences in the places where they live.
There are 21 independent projects, each located in an area where people have traditionally had fewer opportunities to get involved with the arts. Creative People and Places projects have reached 1.45 million people, 91% of who do not regularly engage in the arts.
