Tyne & Wear Archives and Museums is a regional museum, art gallery and archives service. Through this project, the museum will partner with ten schools from Newcastle and North and South Tyneside; with local arts organisations, the Arbeia Roman Fort, Laing Art Gallery and Segedunum Roman Fort; and with Newcastle University on research and evaluation. Drawing on the resources of museum collections and through three art forms (visual arts, craft and creative writing), the project aims to support teachers’ in developing pupils’ communication and enquiry skills.
