Current Projects

The Learning and Participation Team at The Customs House engage diverse communities in a range of creative experiences, both in the venue and across South Tyneside.



Create, Curate & Pizza

Visual art and curation in a one-day workshop. Led by our Digital and Visual Artist, participants create art in a guided life-drawing session before working together to curate an exhibition, all in less than a day. It’s fun, it’s free, and there’s pizza. For more information contact [email protected] or click here to view more information.
