As summer gets into full swing, we’re out and about bringing with us a variety of creative opportunities to our local communities.
Look out for a busy programme of creative get-togethers for older people in rural Suffolk, family activities in Lowestoft and the launch of booking for our brand new Brave Art programme for adults with learning disabilities, which starts in September.

All free of charge, and covering a wide variety of creative pursuits, there’s something for everyone! Read more about the forthcoming get-togethers
Booking now open for Brave Art courses
Booking is now open for our new year-long art courses for adults with learning disabilities, which take place in Bury St Edmunds, Ipswich and Lowestoft from this September.
Brave Art is an exciting new programme, during which students will learn new creative, life and leadership skills supported by professional artists and tutors. Read more about Brave Art.
Free summer activities for families in Lowestoft
Our regular Lowestoft Folk sessions may have finished, but we’ve got a really exciting programme of FREE storytelling and creative activity sessions happening in Lowestoft this summer. All the creative activities run on a ‘drop-in’ basis and are limited only by the number of chairs we can get round the table! Read more about the summer activities.
Meet the artist – Caitlin Howells
We’ve been working with community artist, Caitlin Howells, for many years now, and our collaborations never fail to produce beautiful results, both in terms of our participants’ creative experiences and the artworks they produce together. Read more about Caitlin.
A word from our friends
Look out for the Siren Festival, taking place in Aldeburgh 29th July – 11th August.
The festival champions our coast in a changing climate. Fusing wonder, art, science, performance and music; Siren entertains and inspires every generation. A showcase for all who can use their talents to make a difference because, as never before on our changing planet, all people have the gift, the right, to speak for both our environment and our young people’s future.
