Great North Run Culture is an annual series of arts projects, events and exhibitions which celebrate and explore sport and art.

Featuring film, photography, dance, drama, writing, participation projects and much more, we use the world's largest half-marathon as the starting point for commissioning exciting, innovative and accessible art.

For invites to special events and exhibitions sign up to our mailing list.
