Tees Valley Arts


Tees Vally Arts is recruiting ten young people as part of the government’s kickstart scheme. The applications will close on 21st May, please click here for more details.


Tees Valley Arts is a charity that uses the arts to create social change.

We believe that the arts and culture create societies and offer challenges to the status quo. Communities have a right to tell their stories which reflect their past and will shape their future. Tees Valley Arts will act as a catalyst for all communities to become cultural producers, galvanising creative action and championing positive change.

Working with partners, we will lead in the cultural sector regionally and advocate for our region’s culture in national and international arenas.
