“I love ArtyParti. It’s a fantastic resource for the city and a great way for listeners to become more informed about what is happening in the cultural sector. Long may it continue.” – Helen Green, Head of Performance for Sunderland Culture.
ArtyParti is a weekly podcast, and live radio programme on Sunderland’s community radio station Spark, providing artists & creatives a platform to promote their projects & passions – and discuss issues that are important within Sunderland and the wider region.
“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.
“ArtyParti has gone from strength to strength since its first broadcast. It’s a fantastic way for artists to open up a dialogue with a wider audience.” – Jo Howell, Photographic Artist.
With ambitions to begin creating an annual printed anthology of work from artists who’ve been featured on ArtyParti, and begin podcasting our episodes, we recently launched a Patreon – you can help support our show & its growth.
“We desperately need platforms to promote all the local talent, so long may Jay and his fabulous team thrive and flourish.” – Dolores Porretta-Brown, Director of Hands On North East CIC.
