Grants for the Arts

NAD logo


We run workshops on Saturdays and after school on Tuesdays and Thursdays alongside the current exhibitions in the SHED and encourage the young people to meet the artists and to respond to their work. Here is Josh (aged 12) working on his self protrait after meeting Michele Selway as part of his Bronze level Arts Award.

Dominic Richardson, a 21 year old disabled artist achieved a Bronze Level Arts Award in 2014. He is now working towards a Silver Arts Award. Here he is on a field trip to London with life coach Alistair Guthrie and mentor Alison Raimes. Mentoring is offered on a one to one basis for Bronze and Silver Arts award (subject to funding). Please email for more information.

Klye and Taylor (aged 12) also responding to Michele Selway's exhibition inthe SHED. They are preparing to start their Silver Arts Award and are particularly interested in working in photography and film. Subject to funding, they will be working with some of the North East's brightest new artists through the Whistle Art Stop's Graduate Programme.

In 2014, 2015 and 2017, we received an award of £750 from the High Sheriff of Northumberland for our work with young people. Dominic and Alison are seen here accepting the certificate from Conrad Dickinson in 2014.
