Happy Creativity & Wellbeing week!
And this week is particularly special, as today we celebrate the launch of Suffolk Artlink on Google Arts & Culture, which brings news of our work to people around the world.
As always we are bringing new ways of being creative to our communities. Read on to learn about our new programme of free creative sessions in Kirkley, Lowestoft. We’ll also be holding an event as part of ‘First Light present Longest Days of Summer’ in June.
In other news, we’re thrilled to see our Clown Doctors back safely on their rounds in Norwich, and are working towards expanding our face-to-face delivery across the East in the weeks and months to come.
Wishing you a creative and healthy week!
Hayley & Alex, Co-Directors
Creating community in Kirkley
We are welcoming residents in and around Kirkley to grow, eat and share through our new series of inspiring, social and creative weekly get-togethers centred around the area’s venues and green spaces.
Every Tuesday from now until August, you can enjoy free artist-led activities alongside guests including forager, Jon Tyler. Read more about Kirkley Creates.
Suffolk Artlink goes global on Google Arts & Culture!
In celebration of Creativity and Wellbeing week, hundreds of artworks and photos from our projects can now be viewed online on Google Arts & Culture by people around the world.
Users across the globe will be able to see collections of artworks created by our students and participants and imagery taken at our projects. Read more about our Google Arts and Culture exhibition.
Guess who’s back, back again? (Spoiler alert – it’s the Clown Doctors!)
We’re delighted that our Clown Doctors are back on their rounds at the Norfolk & Norwich Hospital’s Children’s Ward.
Drs Dizzy, Curly, Misschief, Fidget and Buffflé are making sure that as they increase their social distance they are also upping their social silliness! Read more about the return of the Clown Doctors.
Get Creative at Home
As it’s Creativity and Wellbeing week, and the school holidays are coming up, we thought it was a great time to share some new resources with you, designed to help introduce pre-school children to music in creative ways.
They were created during Little Beats, a project that saw us partnering with Suffolk Libraries over the past year. Read more about our Little Beats resources.
A Wing & A Prayer
In recognition of the work Suffolk Artlink does to use art to inspire our communities, Suffolk-based glass artist, Arabella Marshall, continues to raise money for Suffolk Artlink through her ‘Wing & A Prayer’ campaign.
If you’d like to help support our communities through the arts at this challenging time,
you can donate via Arabella’s Just Giving page.
