Headway Arts focus on participatory arts & culture, offering people creative opportunities for expression, enabling personal development & social inclusion.


Headway Arts aims to be the organization of choice for quality arts participation in Northumberland; to provide exemplary facilities and opportunities for arts participation in Blyth – creating a centre of excellence for arts and social inclusion; and to have a UK wide and international reputation for the quality and innovation of our work.


From a base in Blyth Headway Arts provides high quality, creative, arts participation opportunities for communities in Northumberland and beyond, with particular expertise in engaging and including disadvantaged people, specifically but not exclusively those who are learning disabled.
