East by North East 2017 Project Film

Thank you to everyone who has been a part of our fantastic East by North East project so far. Without the hard work of all the young people, support workers, teachers, volunteers and music leaders who have taken part and supported this work, we wouldn't be able to shout about this amazing project!

East by North East is a Youth Music funded project led by GemArts, working with partners CHAT Trust, Excelsior Academy, Life Transformation Church, Linhope PRU, North Benwell Youth Project, Sage Gateshead, Success4All and West Walker Family Centre.

The project has enabled over 190 young people to develop and share their compositions and performance skills in a range of genres, addressing issues, developing life skills and achieving Arts Award. Through East by North East, GemArts has also diversified the workforce of music practitioners, offering training and development to ensure that creativity and diversity is thriving in the North East!  

This short film celebrates everyone’s achievements on the East By North East project, we hope you enjoy watching.



Filmed and edited by the very talented Jodie Canwell.
