Young Arts Update 2020
25/10/2019 Friday

We continue to support Young Arts locally, and this year we maintained our relationships with Melton Primary School and Farlingaye High School, and we also contributed to the Woodbridge Riverside Trust’s work with young people. We made a donation towards the provision of an outdoor musical instrument at Melton School, as part of an initiative organised by the Friends of the school.

At Farlingaye School we have worked with both the art and music departments this year. We paid for a well-regarded textile artist, Cas Holmes, to do a day’s workshop with the textile students, who benefited enormously from the experience of working with a professional artist. Her ideas and inspiration influenced their own final exam pieces.

We also donated to the music department, and these funds are being used to improve the percussion section of their bigger ensembles such as the concert and brass bands. We made this specific contribution in memory of Diana Madden, but hope to continue our support of all Farlingaye’s creative arts departments in the future.


Finally, we have supported the Woodbridge Riverside Trust, which organised two activities for children during the summer months. Three professional storytellers led family workshops in the Longshed, themed around rivers, seas and voyages. There were half-day dance workshops for children, considering the influence of tides and exploring flow through movement. These were led by an experienced choreographer. Pupils at all 12 primary schools that feed into Farlingaye High School had the opportunity to participate in these, and it is hoped to share some photos of these events with you in the future.
