Been 'n' gone

This gig's over but check out the calendar for the next one.

After the raging success of our first gig we are back again with another gig, again very kindly hosted by Atrium Studios at University Campus Suffolk.This time we are doing things a little differently. Instead of the 3 causes we had last time we are pulling together for one giant cause; a new community Arts Centre for Ipswich.

Kicking off on Friday 5th we’ll have some drinks, discussions and meet our cause to find out how we can help them. Then on Saturday 6th the main event will be a fun packed, turbo charged day of working for good.

We’ll provide the food, the drink, the music and the wifi, you bring yourself, your skills and your enthusiasm!

The Aim

Our aim is to transform St Clement's church into a vibrant, diverse, cutting edge arts centre. To bring it back to life as a community resource; as a vibrant and beautiful space that should be recognised and acknowledged in its own right; as a building that has an important role to play in Ipswich's current and projected cultural development as a twenty first century town.

Our aim is to establish an arts centre that is able to host a range of diverse creative events. Far from being elitist and exclusive St Clements will be established from the outset as a venue purposively designed to be and inclusive community resource. It will be established as a venue that will host events, and have events hosted by, the wide and diverse communities that live and work in Suffolk.

Our aim is to establish a culturally diverse, ecumenical space that is not dominated by one group but can host a range of diverse groups and organisations. It will be established as a place where creativity is encouraged and supported and where people are invited to come together in a space that welcomes everyone.
