Wild About Kirkley free creative events and talks

Suffolk Artlink’s Wild About Kirkley project is based at Kirkley Church Hall, St Peters Road and runs regular, free, creative sessions, open to everyone in the local community. Sessions offer opportunities to learn about Kirkley’s unique natural environment with a particular focus on connecting people with soil and land to boost mental health.

Over the coming months we have many great sessions planned in Kirkley. We are particularly excited to be part of Heritage Open Days offering our new accessible foraging route, devised in collaboration with some of our participants. The Sensory Forage Walk on the 18th September 2022 is ideal for wheelchair users, those who struggle with long distances and people who are visually impaired.

This project is funded by Arts Council England and Suffolk County Council.

Sessions are all free, but booking is essential.
