#DigitalTenderness is a programme of activity launched by Tees Music Alliance to meet some of the pastoral needs of local people.

#DigitalTenderness also aims to increase levels of well-being amongst our creative community - artists, promoters, stage crews and the people who support our events.  

It originally ran at the height of the Covid-19 pandemic presenting online activities or those which were possible with strict social distancing.  However, the effects of the pandemic are still being felt - and are now being added to by the UK's cost of living crisis, discouraging people from coming out to socialise once again; adding to feelings of isolation and poor well being. 

A second edition of our project is now running up to late spring 2023 - but with a programme of face to face activity running alongside an online programme.

We hope to help address some of these issues in our own small way with a range of accessible activities to entertain and inform people... see our programme below.

This aspect of our work has been kindly funded under the Social Enterprise Support Fund by National Lottery Community Fund and The Key Fund - made possible by the generosity of National Lottery players.

Our 2023 update Musician's Atlas is now available - book one of our advice sessions by emailing hell@teesmusicalliance.org.uk or download a digital version HERE.
