Launched to enable the creative sector in Lowestoft to grow, the new hub has been developed following a consultation last year.

Funded through Arts Council England, it will bring creatives together through social media channels and a website, which will be launched later this summer.

Open to creatives who are based in Lowestoft or deliver work in the town, the hub will also have a programme of training, tool kits, networking sessions and 1-2-1 support with a free Cultural Directory also in development.
