ARTS LA’OLAM ANNOUNCE AN INSPIRATIONAL CULTURAL PROGRAMME IN THE TIME OF SOCIAL DISTANCING http://www.la-olam.com/betweenspaces
Arts La’Olam are excited to announce the start of a programme of free events, commissions and participatory online workshops that bring families and people of all ages together in a spirit of creative celebration, addressing social isolation and creating legacy artworks that commemorate these curious and crucial times.
Thanks to a generous grant from Arts Council England the Arts La’Olam mission to bring global arts and music into community settings is repositioning to the digital environment. Eight dedicated projects with artists, working in new and innovative ways, are bringing the life-enhancing energy of the arts into our homes.
#betweenspaces seeks to close the gaps we may be feeling acutely right now and honour the potential for creativity in our reduced surroundings.

Hannah Aria: Creative Change, Art for Wellbeing Online Workshops,
Fridays at 1.30pm from 12th June 2020
Hannah has devised a series of interactive online workshops to be delivered on Friday afternoons at 1.30pm to support mental health service users and those struggling with lockdown.
The first session took place on 12th June 2020. Workshops are designed to be fun and inclusive inspiring people to unleash their imagination using simple objects around the home.
Ultimately, the ambition is to curate the artworks in an exhibition at Quay Place, Ipswich in March 2021, where participants stories and lived experiences of lockdown can unfold.
No artistic talent or experience is required, this is great chance to have fun, create and connect.
