Welcome to the East Durham Creates website!

COVID 19 Impact

With a heavy heart and in light of the ongoing situation regarding Corona Virus/Covid-19 we have taken the decision to postpone ALL of our programme of events and workshops until further notice. This decision has not been taken lightly and has been reached in consultation with our community groups and venues who work closely with us to ensure the health and safety of local people. East Durham Creates is currently considering a new method of programming so we can ensure local people can still get access to art and culture in a safe environment in light of  the current situation.

If you have any questions regarding the above information then please get in touch with us. The East Durham Creates team is still available to be contacted on 0191 569 3511 or via email. 

Thank you for your continued support of the East Durham Creates project.
