STEAM Studios provides a base for creative people and projects from across North Tyneside.

As part of the YMCA family of organisations, we have a particular focus on supporting and developing young people’s creative interests.

Emerging Talent at STEAM

STEAM Creative Studios is a centre for excellence for creativity in all its forms. STEAM has been established to provide spaces, facilities, support and inspiration to develop your creative ideas.

Through the provision of facilities and spaces we are becoming known as a space for local artists and young people to develop their creative passions.
