Arts La'Olam

Coronavirus Support

Eight new online free projects especially for elders, disability groups, mental health service users and cultural art lovers...

Suffolk-based Arts La’Olam are hosting an online programme of free events, commissions and participatory online workshops that bring families and people of all ages together in creative celebration, addressing social isolation and creating artworks that commemorate the curious and crucial times we are living through. Thanks to an Arts Council England grant, the Arts La’Olam mission to bring global arts and music into community settings is moving to the digital environment. Eight projects with artists working in new ways, bring 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 within our reduced surroundings.
