Blyth creative scene boosted by revival funding

Posted by on 15 Dec 2015

Funding from the Coastal Communities Coastal Revival Fund is set to give an iconic Blyth building a new lease of life, boosting the town’s creative scene.

Awarded £46,145, the Headway ArtSpace project will use the funds to regenerate the town’s former United Reformed Church, on Waterloo Road.

The fund supports projects that demonstrate creativity, enterprise and passion needed to help seaside towns become year round destinations that people want to live and work in.

Future developments will see multi-use facilities, including exhibition space, theatre and arts studios, meeting and conference space for use by the local community, partners organisations, resident artists and visitors from this country and abroad.  

Headway arts works locally, nationally and internationally with 12 partner organisation across Europe sharing good practice around using the arts in community engagement, educational development and social inclusion.

Headway said: “We are very proud to be at the forefront of local regeneration and have our valuable work recognised and supported by government - our dedicated and talented team at Headway Arts have worked hard towards this fantastic result for Blyth. We are over the moon”
