Welcome to Renaissance North East
Renaissance North East has worked with each and every museum in the region over the last seven years and has touched the lives of millions of people.
Renaissance North East works with museums to establish places of learning, inspiration and enjoyment for all, and to be central to, and reflective of, the region's character, culture, economy and aspirations.
This is achieved by extending and improving museum provision, through partnership, creativity and innovation, for the benefit of the North East and its diverse communities.
