Sunderland Cultural Partnership is a collaboration led by University of Sunderland, Sunderland City Council and Music, Arts and Culture (MAC) Trust, with support from Arts Council England.

The partnership brings together many of Sunderland’s cultural organisations including Faculty of Arts, Design and Media, National Glass Centre, Cultural Spring, Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art, Sunderland Museum and Winter Gardens, Arts Centre Washington, Sunderland Empire, North East Photography Network, Libraries Service and Canny Space.

The aim of the partnership is to coordinate cultural vision, promote joint planning and facilitate better engagement between partners across the city.

Over the past year Sunderland Cultural Partnership has been working with key individuals and organisations to forge a new vision for arts and culture in the City, which launches on 17 October at National Glass Centre. You can view and download Sunderland’s new vision for culture here.
