Sandlings Sculpture Garden –
An introduction to Waveney & Blyth Arts from our trustees.
See what our creative members are up to…
Waveney & Blyth Arts has been involved with artists, organisations and venues – through its membership and its events – for over 12 years. We’re now planning to put a bit of our money where our mouth is, and develop our involvement with the arts community in these valleys.
We have already chipped in £500 to an exciting project, Procession, being organised by the Norwich-based Voice Project. We have a close connection: the choir has members in our area and you may remember our collaboration, Translated by Reeds performed in Diss, Halesworth and Great Yarmouth in 2013 and the performance of Distance Between Us in Blythburgh church last summer.
Procession is an ambitious series of events inspired by WG Sebald’s celebrated journey through Suffolk for his book, The Rings of Saturn. Starting this year and running for three years, there will be community workshops as well as the development of choral music. Read more about it here.
On a more modest level, we are planning to fund one or two projects in our own patch where £150 would make something happen that otherwise wouldn’t. It could be for an individual member or a small organisation. It’s as open as that: applications to email@example.com. And if we can’t help financially, we may be able to help in other ways, so do get in touch.
