At Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums we believe that everyone should have access to our exhibitions, collections and programmes.
Museums are a great resource and the possibilities to work with us are endless.
Our Outreach team works with a range of communities and are always looking for new ways to bring museums to life for different audiences - whether in the museums or outside at a venue to suit the group.
Past projects have included working with:
- looked-after young people
- young carers
- culturally diverse communities / BME communities
- older people
- residential homes for young and older people
- women's groups
- lads' and dads' groups
- young mums
- the probation service
- youth referral units
- local history groups
- disability support groups
- Deaf community groups
- homeless people's projects
- healthy living project groups
... to name a few. You can find out more about our approach to working with Communities in an article by Outreach Officer, Zoe Brown.
Recovering Identities through Culture and Heritage:
One of our current initiatives is the Recovering Identities through Culture and Heritage (RICH) programme which is a culture and heritage programme specifically for people who are in recovery from addiction, or who are involved in the criminal justice system.

If you are interested in working with us we would love to hear from you.
