Helix Arts has delivered high quality, safe arts experiences throughout the pandemic.

On Monday 19th July, most restrictions associated with pandemic were lifted and wearing a face covering is now a personal choice in England, however we also know many people may still choose to wear face covering, particularly those who are more vulnerable.

We are committed to ensuring all our participants, partners, volunteers, artists and employees are kept as safe as possible. So, for the time being, we will be continuing to encourage everyone taking part in in-person sessions (unless exempt) to wear face coverings, maintain social distancing, regularly sanitise their hands and to not attend sessions if they feel unwell or have a high temperature.

Thank you for your understanding.

Louder is a young people’s peer education arts project delivered by Helix Arts in partnership with Rape Crisis Tyneside and Northumberland.

This partnership project with Rape Crisis North Tyneside and Northumberland will develop a new bespoke drama piece which will be co-created by young people from North Shields with and artist Liv Hunt.

Young people will develop their confidence, motivation and skills during the development of their drama piece. They will engage with and explore the materials, processes and concepts with artist Liv Hunt’s creative practice.

Louder provides a unique opportunity for young people to share their lived experience and spark conversations around relationships and boundaries.

The project has ambitions to develop a resource which will be disseminated beyond the immediate group to their peers.

Thanks to our Project Partners

This project is delivered in partnership with Rape Crisis and supported by Children North East.
