In 2012, Museums Northumberland bait set a 10 year mission that more people in South East Northumberland were being creative, making decisions, feeling more positive and setting up their own creative projects and keeping them going. This is the story so far…
To celebrate the completion of the second phase of the bait programme, 2016-2019 a new exhibition at Woodhorn Museum (October 2019), Nowt About Us Without Us celebrated and shared a picture of contemporary creative lives in South East Northumberland. You can find out more about the projects and partners we worked with in this downloadable exhibition guide below.
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.
