Established in 2012, the Music, Arts and Culture Trust has been the catalyst, developer and promoter of cultural activities within Sunderland and elsewhere. It brings together people with ability, talent and ambition who share a vision for the future where the arts, music and culture flourish.
It seeks to encourage people of all ages and all backgrounds to participate in cultural activities such as playing an instrument, learning to dance, act or sing or creating literature or poetry.
The Trust sees the digital revolution that has been created through new technology and the Internet as an amazing opportunity allowing new forms of creativity and providing ways of reaching existing and new audiences.
The Trust develops the infrastructure and venues needed for this cultural renaissance and helps to build organisations and capacity within the sector.
