Geordie heritage told through the lens of young people from ethnically diverse and under-served communities living in the North East of England
Established over the summer of 2022, Tyne Tea’ers is a group of young people who are working on a 20-month heritage project funded by The National Lottery Heritage Fund, ‘The River Tyne: Then, Now & Tomorrow’
The project focuses on the heritage of the River Tyne and its impact on the identity of ethnically diverse and under-served North East communities.
As part of the project, the young people will go on a journey of discovery, uncovering the rich heritage of the River Tyne and the communities that once lived and worked along the banks of the River Tyne.
Through a series of public events, delivered in partnership with local heritage and creative arts professionals, the young people will curate an art exhibition and a play, which will be announced later in the year, where they will get to showcase their findings & hopes for the future.
The group is always happy to welcome new members to the project.
