ArtyParti is vital for the area as it represents the arts in a vibrant and fun way, while retaining integrity and respect for the arts.  With its friendly and knowledgable host ArtyParti is the standard radio shows should aspire to.” – Andrew Hunter, Graphic Artist.

A key strength of ArtyParti is our development of continued relationships with arts & cultural organisations in the North East; not just featuring them and promoting their projects, but actively collaborating through ongoing projects.
