Stockton Riverside College
ARC has a long history of working with Stockton Riverside College, in particular supporting the college’s Performing Arts courses. Each year, students studying for BTEC Diplomas mount their Christmas show in ARC’s Theatre, presenting 30+ performances to audiences of more than 5,000.
The Northern School of Art
The Northern School of Art is the North East’s only specialist arts and design school. In September 2019, ARC signed a Memorandum of Understanding with The Northern School. This signifies our commitment to working together on a range of cultural initiatives to support the ongoing regeneration of the area through high quality arts, drama and culture.
Students from The Northern Schools performing arts courses are regular contributors to ARC’s programme, benefitting from the many opportunities we offer artists developing their careers.
