January began with a flurry of activity and we are pleased to announce that booking is now open for our new JumpstART arts course.
Over the last few weeks we’ve also been busy in Lowestoft, delivering the first of many creative workshops as part of our Lowestoft Folk project, and scheduling the next few Around the Table sessions for family carers. And to top the month off, we’ve received fantastic news about new funds to support the development of our Forget-me-not Visitorproject at Ipswich Hospital.
2018 is showing no signs of slowing down, and we are looking forward to another year of bringing the benefits of being creative to our friends and neighbours in the East.
Wishing you a creative and joyful year,
Alex & Hayley, Co-Directors

A word from our friends
Online artist community Pop My Mind has recently launched a new bursary scheme, offering its members two £300 bursaries a month for creating and uploading a new piece of work in response to another piece on their website (termed ‘Popping’).

As the new year begins, it’s a great time to set a personal challenge to work towards. If you have a brave, silly or creative idea to raise funds for Suffolk Artlink, please do get in touch, we’d be happy to offer advice, support and promotional goodies!
