Well Newcastle Gateshead Projects Go Virtual!

The COVID-19 situation has presented the community, arts and culture sectors with unprecedented challenges, with many organisations looking to connect and engage with beneficiaries in new and innovative ways.

Some Well Newcastle Gateshead funded projects, including North East Wilds Forest Lunch Club, Digital Voice Skills for Chopwell and Friends Action North East Make Art, Make Friends are connecting with participants online and making art in virtual spaces. North East Wilds are providing additional support through the provision of food and arts activity boxes to help women who are self-isolating in Chopwell.

Friends Action North East have released an online arts tutorial for their participants, which you can view below:

We are so proud of each of our projects’ efforts to connect with those who need it most. Thank you all for the amazing work you do to make your communities healthy and connected places!
