About Us

Who we are

Tees Valley Arts is a participatory arts organisation, based in Middlesbrough, working across the five boroughs of the Tees Valley: Darlington, Hartlepool, Middlesbrough, Redcar and Cleveland, and Stockton. We design and manage bespoke creative activities which are delivered by freelance artists using many different artforms; we believe that through creative participation people of all abilities, ages and backgrounds can engage, enjoy, learn and make progress in their lives, and that creative participation can be a transformational tool for improving life and learning for individuals and communities.

Our Charitable Objects

To promote, maintain and encourage for the education of the public the development of the whole range of arts activity, in the area currently known as the Tees Valley and its environs including drama, dance, music, opera, ballet, visual arts, photography, exhibitions, crafts, films, literature and community arts, for all members of the local community, without regard to disability, ethnic background, sexuality, age, gender, ability, or religious or other belief.
