Tyne and Wear Archives and Museums



Tyne and Wear Archives and Museum's Culture, Health and Communities team specialise in working with the people and communities of Tyneside - connecting creativity, health and wellbeing.

For over 20 years we have developed inspiring museum programmes that recognise the positive health impacts of cultural participation.

We believe in strategic partnerships and work with health and care professionals, local authorities, universities, charities and support services. Our programmes have been devised based on robust research identifying areas of need in our region.

We care about the health and economic inequalities in the North East and by fusing creativity with health and wellbeing we aim to create a healthier, happier and more equal society.
