Launching across Newcastle and Gateshead is a brand new project and 10 year strategy for engaging children and young people in arts and culture. City Of Dreams has the involvement of all major cultural venues in the city -The Baltic, Centre for Life, Dance City, Live Theatre, Northern Stage, The Sage, Seven Stories, the Theatre Royal, Tyne and Wear Museums and the Tyneside Cinema—along with Alphabetti Theatre and companies such as Unfolding Theatre and Curious Monkey.

With a launch date set for Tuesday 18th September, the focus of getting young people taking part, finding their voice and developing in confidence and skills is a great way for under 25s to start to make their mark creatively and find the next generation of creative talent in our region. Recognising the challenges that young people face and seeking to address those, City Of Dreams is an exciting long term project.

The launch will be held at Northern Stage and there will be two events: a morning seminar for cultural organisations and presentations, announcements and performances.

Then, every twelve months from November to February, children and young people across the city will be asked to tell what the powers-that-be need to know.

Getting young people involved further with our rich cultural scene is so important, and City Of Dreams has set its stall out to be a vital part of the city for years to come.

City Of Dreams launches at Northern Stage, Newcastle on Tuesday 18th September.
