Who We Are

Following a successful bid to Arts Council England (ACE), Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums (TWAM) has responsibility for providing museum development support in the North East region for the period April 2018-March 2022. TWAM is one of nine development providers funded through ACE to drive development and deliver sustainability, resilience and innovation in England's regional museums.

The North East Museum Development Programme provides one point of access for professional advice and guidance and delivers a range of support and opportunities to ensure that all Accredited museums, as well as those working towards Accreditation, no matter what their size or scope, can maximise their benefits to audiences and communities.
