Stockton on Tees Borough Council

ARC works with Stockton on Tees Borough Council, one of our core funders, across a number of areas.

As the Council’s strategic arts development partner, we deliver creative activities for people from across the Borough. We contribute to the Council’s priorities around places and open spaces, keeping the community safe, young people, health, helping communities prosper, the provision of care and great experiences.

We work directly with Children’s and Adult Services as well as the Arts, Culture and Leisure team.
