Community Projects - Get Involved


Working with communities is at the heart of what we do. Find out about our current projects and how to get involved below.



Woman Made - Heritage Lottery Fund

This project will celebrate the cultural and creative role of women in Amble and Pegswood and the contribution they make to the wider community. Woman Made will honour and research the touring initiatives of the 1940’s instigated by the Council for Encouragement of Music and the Arts (the forerunner of the present day Arts Council). 


Curiosity Cafe

Curiosity Cafe is our flagship dementia positive programme. It puts people living with dementia, their carers and families at the heart of every activity. A dynamic and joyous programme developed via direct consultation with the people who live with dementia. Our collective aim is to change the story and negative stereotypes often associated with dementia and to show what is possible in the here and now.


Falling On Your Feet

Falling on Your Feet is a dance and health programme which Dry Water Arts will be delivering in partnership with Helix Arts. The classes are for people aged 65+ who are living independently. Over the course of ten classes we aim to increase strength, improve balance and flexibility, keep your heart healthy, reduce stress and boost memory.
