The Case for Culture North East


The Case for Culture developed by the North East Culture Partnership sets out a framework for the development and growth of the region’s arts and heritage sectors from 2015 to 2030. In 2022, the Case for Culture will be refreshed through consultation with the region's heritage and arts organisations, practitioners and stakeholders.

C4C has been developed by the North East Culture Partnership; which is backed by the private sector, the region’s five universities, the further education sector and by all twelve local authorities who play a vital role in supporting the development of arts and heritage.



The Case for Culture (C4C) is a positive statement of ambition for the North East of England’s arts and heritage sectors.


The North East Culture Partnership regularly provides updates for its partners and produces its own publications and reports. In this section, you can keep up-to-date with the latest publications, press releases and reports from the Partnership on how the region is delivering Case for Culture.

This project is sponsored by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
