Suffolk Artlink

Whether it’s a family carer enjoying some time out as part of Around the Table, or one of our JumpstART students looking on proudly as their art work sells for the first time, we are glad to be warming hearts as the temperature drops.

And this month we are thrilled to be launching a new way for you to support our work. So if you’d like to ensure the arts continue to be a source of inspiration, confidence and joy to our communities, please consider signing up as a Suffolk Artlink Supporter today.

Best wishes,
Alex & Hayley

Our pioneering arts project brings joy to Norfolk’s women’s refuges

February saw the start of our unique arts project – Giggle Visits – which aims to help bring distraction and joy to families in women’s refuges in Norfolk.

Our ‘Giggle Workers’ headed off to one of Leeway’s larger women’s refuges in Norfolk, to use their special brand of artistry to bring fun, laughter and distraction to children, young people and their families. Read more

Lowestoft Folk gets off to a great start

It’s been great fun bringing children and care home residents together for the first time this month to explore Lowestoft’s folk heritage. The children have already found out so much from the adults, and many snippets of family customs and traditions have been shared.

The first pairing of the project saw school pupils from Oulton Broad primary school begin a series of visits to Broadland Care Home residents. Read more

A word from our friends

In 2018 the Museum of East Anglian Life is running a pilot year of activities called Golden Ticket. We aim to offer a free activity to every 12-year-old in Mid-Suffolk from 2019-2022.  Sessions will take place in school holidays on Tuesdays and Saturdays, and will provide a wide range of opportunities such as archery, outdoor cooking, survival skills, animation, sewing, felting and jewellery making.

We’re looking for outside practitioners to help us deliver day long sessions.   If you’d be interested in getting involved, please contact Jo Rooks, Learning and Participation Manager at [email protected] / 01449 618227.
