As well as launching projects like Rock On and looking to the future as we create and devise fresh work, it’s equally important to us to evaluate and learn from our past endeavours. So today we’re sharing news of both the old and the new.
And don’t forget if you love art and would like to support our work, you can take part in the Suffolk Open Studios prize draw until the end of May. There are 14 artworks to be won, generously donated by Suffolk Open Studios participants, in exchange for a £5 donation to our work. Good luck!
