Welcome to the East Durham Creates website!

COVID 19 Impact

We had to change the way we worked during coronavirus but that didn’t mean we weren’t still continuing to get local people engaged with arts and culture! You can find our full programme of what we delivered in our Covid-19 response menu. We’ve now completed Phase 2 and are working to start up the next phase of East Durham Creates as soon as possible. Watch the film below for more about the last three years of the project.
Thank you for your continued support of the East Durham Creates project.

East Durham Creates is funded by Arts Council England as part of it’s  Creative People and Places   (CPP) programme. East Durham Creates is one of 33 CPP projects. Each project is completely unique to it’s area and residents. East Durham Creates seeks to engage local people in creative activities and grow arts provision in ways that are sustainable and can last. We aim to attract more people to choose, create and take part in brilliant art experiences in the places where they live.
