With two new projects bursting into life, we are looking forward to a busy month ahead. As well as developing new ways to support our communities through participatory art, we’ve also enjoyed sharing the success of one of our longest standing projects with Suffolk’s High Sheriff.
None of this wonderful work is possible without a great deal of support. Our appreciation goes to the Heritage Lottery Fund, Suffolk County Council and our very own Rachel Bennett, who recently took on a personal challenge to raise us an amazing £800. Thank you!
Best wishes for a creative and inspiring month.
Hayley & Alex, Suffolk Artlink Co-Directors
We’re inviting adult family carers to join us around the table
We are delighted to announce the launch of our newest project, Around the Table. By exploring food, creativity and culture in regular workshops, we will give adult family carers an opportunity to gain respite from their caring role, develop new support systems and build their confidence. The first workshop takes place in Lowestoft on Thursday 16th November. Read more
Celebrating Lowestoft Folk
In another new project, we’ll be bringing local school children and older people together through a series of artist-led programmes which celebrate Lowestoft’s folk heritage.
We’re looking for artists to work with on this project. Please get in touch with us before 6th November to register your interest. Read more
Suffolk’s High Sheriff pays a visit
We were pleased to welcome Geoffrey Probert and his wife Nella to our JumpstART course in Bury St Edmunds last month.
We enjoyed talking about our work with the inspiring pair, and the students had a great time sharing their slogan emblazoned badges and tote bags, created as part of this term’s Protest Arts module.
Meet the artist
October’s artist of the month is the multi-disciplinary marvel, Kaitlin, who has most recently been bringing creativity and laughter to residential care homes across Suffolk as part of our ‘Our Place’ project. Read more
A big thank you to Ipswich Building Society in Halesworth for their donation of £100 this month. Support from local businesses makes a huge difference to us. If you work for a company that supports local charities, and you think we might fit the bill, do get in touch.
Thanks to Arts Council Catalyst funding, all new donations we get are being doubled, so it’s a great time to give:
