Why We Joined Without Walls
The Without Walls membership is invaluable to our organisation for the following reasons:-
- Enables us to connect with high quality touring outdoor performance
- Help us to strengthen programme knowledge and raise awareness of different artwork offers
- Allows us to network nationally which helps with combatting geographical isolation

The quest for cultural development can sometimes be a very lonely mission and the network offer wonderful insight and support.
Impact on Local Communities
North East Lincolnshire is recognised as a Priority Place with a large proportion of wards within the most deprived 10% of England. We have often been described as ‘a cultural desert’. The Culture House recognise the value and need for culture to help improve quality of life and have always been driven by bringing high-quality art and culture to the area; we believe that people should have access to culture, no matter where they live.
Our projects not only connect local residents and community but attract visitors to the area and provide opportunities to showcase and develop local talent, building confidence, and raising aspirations while providing work opportunities.
