The Case for Culture North East
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.
