Young people from Northumberland have been engaging in the arts as part of a new initiative from Newcastle College.

Bedlington-based charity Leading Link has been working with The Arts in Partnership to provide a number of interactive opportunities for Northumberland Children’s University Passport holders and the Youth Ambassadors, who are a dedicated group of young volunteers that work with the charity.

The Arts in Partnership is a new initiative set up by Newcastle College to stimulate and excite young people in engaging with the arts for enrichment but also as potential career routes in their future.

Lyn Horton, manager of Leading Link, said: “Our work is about maximising the potential of young people by giving them ‘real’ experiences – and when we first met The Arts in Partnership, we were incredibly impressed by their incredible enthusiasm and creative mindset.”
