Lowestoft Creative Forum

Lowestoft Creative Forum 2019-10-24T12:44:21+01:00

Get together with like-minded creatives in Lowestoft

Catch up, find new collaborators and share ideas.

Hosted by the Marina Theatre, these sessions are for artists, creatives, producers and arts organisations to meet, strengthen connections and enable better arts networking in Lowestoft and the wider Eastern region.

We hold regular informal meet ups, talks and workshops, working with and reacting to our members to develop and define our mission – programming sessions that the group feels will benefit them.

This is a free event and light refreshments will be provided too!

Previous sessions have included arts marketing support, skills sharing, heritage grant funding, guest speakers from First Light Festival and recently, Ivan Cutting from Eastern Angles Theatre Company. Check back regularly for details of upcoming Forum meetings, or join our Facebook group to find out more.

Next Creative Forum Meet-up

November 26th 6pm-8pm

We will be joined by 64 million artists – They use artistic and creative challenges to inspire positive change and develop cultural advancement. They also run free, UK-wide programmes like #thejanuarychallenge to kickstart creativity as a road to well-being.

At 64 Million Artists we believe everyone is creative, and when we use our creativity we can make positive change in our lives and the world around us. We aim to be a catalyst for the creativity of everyone in the UK.

Since we were founded in 2014 by Jo Hunter and David Micklem, we’ve worked with schools, universities, whole cities, workplaces, cultural institutions and health and government bodies to experiment with ways of reconnecting people with their innate creativity. We run programmes for individuals and communities, design and deliver bespoke solutions for clients and also work on national partnering initiatives to use creativity for positive change.

We’re a social enterprise and love to work in collaboration with interesting partners. – 64 Million Artists Website (24.10.19)

This project is part of Making Waves Together, a wider partnership project led jointly by Great Yarmouth Borough Council and Waveney District Council, and funded by the national Great Place Scheme, which is seeing communities and organisations in both areas work together to boost the cultural offer and drive cultural re-imagination as a way of supporting success in the seaside towns.

Making Waves Together is largely funded with a grant from the Great Place Scheme, delivered by Arts Council England, the Heritage Lottery Fund and Historic England.
