About the project

Re:Visits is an exciting and ambitious new creative programme, driven by our extensive physical and digital archives, to help shape our future aspirations and activities.

Over the next 3 years, we will create a range of exciting opportunities for artists and communities to create and share new work and take part in conversations, research, commissions, community projects and exhibitions across the North East.

We are as passionate as ever about creating collaborative interdisciplinary arts projects with and by communities and artists to challenge perceptions and make our world a better place.

We want to hear from people who have connected with Helix in the past. So please tell us what you enjoyed, how we made an impact and what do you want to see us doing next?
