Arts and Culture

How do Babergh and Mid Suffolk District Councils support arts and culture across the two districts?

  • We ensure villages and towns thrive, through a collaborative approach. The creation of cultural network groups within market towns has also made culture more accessible to all
  • We recognise culture as the key driving force behind growth in towns, and for residents
  • We work with partners to build higher levels of cultural participation, and manage strategic programmes and projects
  • We support residents to start well, live well and age well, using culture to improve health and wellbeing
  • We develop innovative partnerships between cultural providers and educational institutions, which improve cultural education provision for children and young people. Visit Periscope's website for more information
  • We offer fundraising and project advice and guidance
