The Gateshead Young Writers programme - UK

The Gateshead Young Writers programme is a creative writing and arts programme in the north east of England, led by New Writing North and targeting young people who have less opportunity to engage in cultural activity.

This research-led project aims to make change in young people’s lives with writers and artists working with them to introduce them to artistic self expression and new cultural experiences, to support them to develop their own artworks, and to provide progression routes so that they can continue their own personal cultural journey, as creators and/or consumers of culture.

Kavli’s support will enable New Writing North to set up an infrastructure helping more young people to identify and pursue their own talents and ambitions.
