Creative Conversations in Isolation Comissions

Creative Conversations in Isolation Comissions

In these extraordinary times, we’ve been exploring different ways of  supporting artists, creative practitioners and communities across  Fenland and West Suffolk (Forest Heath). 

As a result of our artist call-out at the beginning of April, we’ve now commissioned 20 artists and creative practitioners to strike up ‘Creative Conversations in Isolation’ with communities across the region to co-create and collaborate. 

A big thank you to everyone that sent in their ideas and proposals. 

At the outset we decided that rather than a small number of larger commissions, we wanted to use our limited funds to support as many artists and creative practitioners as possible with micro-commissions. We invited artists to apply for INKLING -  the start of an idea that sounds great but needs exploration -  and CONNECT where a small project may be ready to go.  We had a great response and we’ve had the chance to meet and work with new artists and lay the foundations for ideas to develop over time, to remain flexible and be able to reflect the constant changes we are all facing.

We’re also really pleased with the wide range of artistic ideas including theatre, audio and virtual spaces, painting and illustration, photography, writing and singing. It’s been a huge boost to celebrate the talent and creativity in the region.

We hope these creative projects will be a chance to find moments of connection, encouraging people to connect with their own creativity and with each other. As the projects develop, we'll be sharing their progress on our social media and website.
