Skate Park Celebration & Murals

During the Spring and Summer of 2022 Art Eat developed and delivered a complex and vibrant  project aimed at increasing creative and cultural activities for young people in Ipswich after the pandemic. Funded through Suffolk County Council and part of the Ipswich Cultural Education Programme's campaign Hullabaloo22. Art Eat produced three new murals designed collaboratively with various youth groups, an outdoor photography exhibition about skate culture, a paint jam where members of the public were invited to redesign and freshen up the urban art in and around Stoke Bridge skatepark, a celebration of the skate parks' 20 year anniversary in collaboration with Skate Suffolk and HOAX, 'Streets with Attitude' collaborative workshops for people on wheels with artist Dulce Duca finalising in a public performance over the Jubilee weekend. Great fun was had by all, and much was achieved by the young people of Ipswich.

This project has been made possible by funding from the Covid Continuity Fund for Culture

from Suffolk County Council.
