The process of shaping the full NECC programme is ongoing and the range of expertise we will be recruiting could include dance, music, digital, visual arts, broadcast media, writing and other cultural creative forms and/or socially engaged practice. The practitioners will play an essential role in working with community groups, to shape and inform the collective recovery; exploring and expanding the positive role that arts and culture plays in society.
