Shortlist Toggle

Great North Run Culture is an annual series of arts projects, events and exhibitions which celebrate and explore sport and art.

Featuring film, photography, dance, drama, writing and much more, we use the world's largest half-marathon as the starting point for commissioning exciting and innovative art.

Volunteers wanted!

We work with volunteers with a range of skills and experience to help deliver our annual programme of events, exhibitions and workshops. We are now looking for people to join our team of enthusiastic volunteers to help steward our Great North Greats exhibition from May 2015 - November 2015.
