South Tyneside Arts Studio

South Tyneside Arts Studio is an open access community arts studio open to anyone living in the borough of South Tyneside. We offer a particular supportive service for people living in the borough with established mental health needs. Our main aim has always been: “ To provide the environment and resources that enables people from South Tyneside, both with and without established mental health needs, to participate in creative and artistic activities where mutual creativity can help foster personal growth. ’

A key aspect of the studio, and one, which remains unique in the region, is that the studio is open to anyone from the local community who wishes to attend. We constantly review and maintain an environment of non-stigmatisation, where art is the focus for people’s attendance. This helps to challenge social exclusion and isolation and acts as a positive education tool for mental health issues in the wider community.
