Headway Arts : Arts organisation; operators of Blyth’s Community Art Centre

Established in 1995 by Frances Castle (Chief Executive) and Alison Walton-Robson (Creative Director) and proudly based in Blyth, the arts charity has an extensive portfolio of multi award winning socially engaged and highly creative projects for people of all ages and backgrounds which support fuller inclusion in the arts.

The inspiring artistic programme offers accessible projects which break down barriers to participation such as disadvantage or disability and which support creative development, wellbeing, good mental health, lifelong learning, positive experience, inclusion and personal progression.

Over 25 years Headway Arts has pioneered good practice in inclusive arts and works co-creatively in partnership with over 4,000 people each year offering participants fantastic opportunities to train, learn, grow and develop and contribute to the cultural life of their community.

Projects run locally, regionally, nationally and internationally. Headway Arts’ unique ‘CoCreART methodology’ is at the heart – a people centred model applied across all art forms including: theatre, dance, circus, visual arts, writing, printmaking, outdoor arts, carnival, digital/multimedia installations and film.

The company works with people from all walks of life but has a particular commitment to learning Disabled people, being one of the most marginalised groups. Everyone is welcome.
