As part of North Shields High Street Heritage Action Zone Helix Arts is running a series of projects in North Shields focused on community, culture and heritage.

Starting in early 2022 we will run three of our exciting Make It Happen projects in partnership with The Exchange and with wider community and voluntary secor organisations.

The first 'Heritage Action Zone Make It Happen' project will be for young people aged 15 to 25. After a series of sessions with a Creative Producer and guest artists and speakers who are experts in their field the team of young people will help plan and run an arts event held at The Exchange.

Make it Happen is flexible series of creative sessions. We base the content sessions on the groups exisiting knowledge and understanding of what it takes to run an arts event. During Make It Happen those taking part will discuss and discover more about everything from community consulation to good practice when recruiting artists, risk assessments to budget management, marketing to evaluation and more. Those taking part are in control and make collective decisions based on their interests and the needs of the community. Everyone taking part will feel guided and supported to make great events happen in their community.
