What is Special Delivery?
The individuals behind the letters will be brought to life through a series of participatory creative programmes delivered by a team of artists, including theatre-makers, creative writers, visual and digital artists. Participants will be inspired to investigate historical approaches to letter-writing, consider them in the light of current methods of communication and share significant correspondence of their own.
As well as delivering 12-week programmes to five communities (Lowestoft x 3, Bury St Edmunds x 1, Halesworth x 1) Special Delivery will provide creative sessions in schools and run public workshops at partner venues and wider cultural events.
A legacy of digital interpretation for use in Suffolk Record Offices and museums, plus a literacy resource for use in schools, will be created.
