Taking place from September in Bury St Edmunds, Ipswich and Lowestoft, this term, JumpstART focuses on protest arts. During the 15-week course, students will be learning how to explore and express their views creatively using art forms including drama, graffiti, fashion, poetry and music. The course is led by artist Kirsty Thorpe, and will include a live protest art showcase at the end.
If you’d like to see if JumpstART is for you, we run a series of Explore Days before each course begins.
Explore days take place in the same venue as the main course, on the following dates:
Bury St Edmunds: 18 & 25 July
Ipswich: 12 & 19 July
Lowestoft: 6 & 27 July
