East Durham Creates is funded by Arts Council England as part of its Creative People and Places (CPP) programme. East Durham Creates is one of 30 independent CPP projects. Each project is completely unique to its area and residents. East Durham Creates seeks to engage local people in creative activities and grow arts provision in ways that are sustainable and can last. We aim to attract more people to choose, create and take part in brilliant art experiences in the places where they live.
We are currently in the process of getting our next Phase of delivery up and running so watch this space for more exciting announcements in the future!

WHAT WE DO
We help the communities of the former district of Easington which is made up 20 distinct areas, most of which are former Pit villages that continue to be hugely affected by deprivation following the closure of the Pits. We run a wide range of projects to help the community fight disadvantage including food parcels, telephone befriending for the socially isolated, helping people in the downward spiral of debt, supporting people to get the benefits they deserve, providing holiday activities with food, getting the disengaged engaged with the arts and more.
