A new Arts Centre emerges in Ipswich

stClementChurchIpswich

Ipswich Arts Centre in association with Ipswich Historic Churches Trust and Re-Create are to establish a new Ipswich Arts Centre at St Clement Church.

 

In early November there will be an evening of talks, discussion, music and refreshment to celebrate  the rebirth of St Clement as a new contemporary arts venue forming a bridge between the waterfront development and the town centre.

 

“The aim is to create a contemporary arts centre which will host national and international acclaimed acts in a diverse range of media including music, visual arts, performance, film and theatre. It will complement and support Ipswich’s existing cultural offer, placing Ipswich firmly on the regional and national cultural map.

 

The rebirth of St Clement as a contemporary arts centre aims to restore this beautiful 14th Century building, which provides a natural space for creative expression, where people can congregate and share in this experience”.

 

The opening of a new Arts centre in any community is a red letter day. The impending work at St. Clement is set in a long tradition of utilising redundant church property as theatres, community centres and libraries.

 

The creation of a new, full mix Arts Centre to add to the cultural context of Ipswich and East Anglia as a whole is very exciting indeed.

 

The project has already attracted media attention and has been featured on BBC news, The Stage and East Anglian Daily Times.
