Helix Arts are collecting young people's insights into drug use and abuse across North Tyneside.


North Tyneside Council


Cheryl Gavin

Using cross-artforms, Helix Arts will work with local partners, youth groups and schools to co-produce various artworks which will examine the ‘why’ in young people’s drugs use across the borough.

Focusing on treatment services, barriers, reduction messages and lived experience, this project will deliver community conversations and encourage young people to co-produce their own outputs and interventions for their peers.

Young people will have the opportunity to take part and choose between a multitude of artforms to share their insights. This includes:

  • Music
  • Film
  • Drama
  • Spoken Word
  • Visual Art
  • Digital creation
