Artists' Agency 2024 to 2027

We are delighted to announce  Artists’ Agency is back in North Tyneside. Artists’ Agency is Helix Arts’ artist development programme.

Our new programme is bigger and better as we now have a bespoke 3 year mentoring and support offer to provide even more opportunities to local creatives as part of the North Shields Cultural Quarter.

Our North Tyneside opportunities will build upon our previous offer. This iteration takes all the best bits of our previous programme and responds to what creatives have told us they needed.

We listened to over 70 artists and creative businesses and found out about the challenges faced by freelance artists and small creative businesses. The programme we’ve created is participant centred, flexible and responsive with the these challenges in mind.

The image shows an overhead view of several individuals collaboratively working on a large piece of paper. The paper is filled with colorful drawings, writings, and diagrams. Various art supplies like markers and colored pencils are scattered around. One prominent section on the paper has “FREELANCER FUNDAMENTALS” written in bold letters, surrounded by related illustrations. Another section reads “USEFUL STUFF” in reverse order due to the angle of the image. The individuals appear focused on their task, each contributing to different sections of the paper.

Thank you to our funders

This programme is part of the North Shields Cultural Quarter and is funded by North Tyneside Council through the North East Combined Authority.
