First Step

As it takes “next steps” forward, ArtReach has supported the creative development of First Step in Newcastle, to encompass new, participatory arts initiatives.

First Step works to provide personal development support to migrant women in Newcastle, engaging up to thirty nationalities. ArtReach has helped the organisation through a process of review, development and business planning to devise an exciting portfolio of new, participatory arts initiatives that will enhance the existing programme and create new opportunities for local people. The project has involved extensive consultation activity, partnership development and fundraising.
