Filed under: Introduction

From October 2007 to March 2008, twelve individuals who carry out inspirational work in the arts will be visiting the North East of England. They will come from locations as far flung as New Zealand, Vietnam and Slovenia to spend a week here talking to arts organisations and cultural entrepreneurs. Each visitor will be introduced to the region by a host organisation. We hope they will inspire others and also be inspired themselves.

Through this blog, we will capture their experiences in the North East and to share their thoughts about arts and culture here, and in their home countries. Keep checking the blog for updates!
