We proudly celebrate and promote participatory artists and creatives - with over 180 programmes broadcast on community radio station Spark in Sunderland (107fm).
Join us weekly as we bring artists and creatives together to chat projects and passions, events and exhibitions, artistic practice and advice.
ArtyParti’s website & live events are supported by funding from Arts Council England and the National Lottery Heritage Fund, through the Unlock strand of Sunderland Culture’s Great Place scheme.
