Sunderland Culture

Sunderland Culture brings together the three main funders of arts provision in the city, Sunderland City Council, University of Sunderland and Sunderland Music, Arts and Culture (MAC) Trust into a single, independent, and resilient delivery model, to realise the ambition of a city brimming with creative potential.

We deliver the creative programme in National Glass Centre, Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art, Sunderland Museum & Winter Gardens, Arts Centre Washington, as well as with communities across the city. In late 2021 we look forward to launching Sunderland’s newest performance venue, with the opening of a brand new auditorium at The Fire Station.

Sunderland Culture is an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation and our mission is to improve life for everyone in Sunderland through culture.
