Please support The State of the Arts today!


We’re a small, committed editorial team with lots of experience of working across different elements of culture. Our Patreon page allows our fans to engage with and support our work, so that we can grow this project and get even more of the best content on our site.

Our project celebrates the best emerging talent and innovative ideas from across the region – we’re proud to be the only place where you can find all the best that the North has to offer.

Promoting all this amazing activity depends on our team of editors and writers, who do this out of their love for the arts, free of charge.

​This is a difficult time for everyone, but the creative industries have been hit harder than most. We exist to support our favourite artists, venues and organisers in the North. We want TSOTA to be sustainable and to serve those artists in need of exposure and celebration, now more than ever.

Please support us in these plans today by signing up to one of our tiers of membership – we can’t offer any exclusive content right now, but our patrons can choose the amount they want to donate. This will help us keep this project going so that even more creatives in the North get the exposure they need.
