East by North East is a Youth Music funded project led by GemArts and working in partnership with the Sage Gateshead, Newcastle City Council, & Success4All.
During the first stage, over 2 years, the project provided high quality music making opportunities for 120 young people from the BAME, refugee, asylum seeker and wider communities, based in the West and East end of Newcastle. This project also focused on further developing the skills of local music leaders to meet the demands of culturally diverse communities, as well as using music as a creative intervention to address issues. During stage two GemArts and the partners will continue to offer opportunities, develop skills and bring attention to the enormous talent coming from both the young people and the music practitioners working on East by North East.
The Music Club runs every Saturday 1:00 pm to 2:30pm, at the Apsotolic Church on Dilston Road, NE4 5NP.
