Provide a short description of the project including strategies, regional challenges, aims and specific project activities.: 

The North East Calendar is a web application that each week brings sixty seconds of archive film footage to give visitors to participating website a flavour of the people, places, traditions and events that make the North East so special. The calendar includes footage from around the whole of the North East and is linked to various regional events or anniversaries.

6. Project status
On Going
The Calendar was launched in February 2013 and has several hundred hits a week. The past year has been more challenging since the closure of Sky Tyne & Wear which was the most popular platform. The application is still available free of charge and we would be more than happy to provide the calendar to any interested websites.
