The notion of BALTIC began in 1991 when Northern Arts (now Arts Council England North East) announced its ambition to achieve ‘major new capital facilities for the Contemporary Visual Arts in Central Tyneside’.
BALTIC offers placements and work experience for students at schools, colleges and universities. Our placements are usually within the Learning & Civic Engagement Team and offer an opportunity to experience a wide range of learning events and activities and take part in the planning, preparation and evaluation that goes into these.
