Arts In Celebration…

Ipswich Arts Association is delighted to announce Arts in Celebration, an online programme of arts and performance from across the region produced during this time of lockdown and social distancing and showcasing the talent that is within our communities.

Arts in Celebration will be available via Ipswich Arts Association’s website from 27 September 2020 and will feature music from bands, choirs, ensembles and solo performances; drama and dance; poetry and the spoken word and the visual arts.

Ipswich Arts Association Chairman Christopher Green said: “This is an exciting initiative which will showcase online local and regional talent and bring art and performance to audiences deprived of such during this difficult time. Our members and beyond are thrilled to be able to work on pieces and projects which can be seen by the public through the medium of the internet.”

Adam Cable of Martlesham Brass, a member of Ipswich Arts Association said: “This has been an extraordinary time for the arts. Many of us who make art have felt a real absence of creativeness and coming together. Arts in Celebration gives us a focus to come together safely online and start creating music again. We are already working on a few pieces and can’t wait to get the performance seen.”
