Making Waves Together

Making Waves Together was an ambitious three year programme that aimed to enhance civic pride, health, wellbeing and to unite communities. It brought the towns of Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft together by giving people the opportunity to participate and engage in a wide variety of art and heritage activities and events that they may otherwise not have exposure to. The project aimed to raise the profile for culture as a driver for economic growth and community pride, support cultural education to inspire young people in order to influence the way the towns develop, strengthen both areas and to make them more attractive places to live in, work in, visit and learn about.

Making Waves Together saw Great Yarmouth Borough Council and East Suffolk Council work together with local creative partners to provide more cultural opportunities in Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft. This was all made possible through the Great Places scheme, funded through National Lottery Heritage Fund, Arts Council England and supported by Historic England

Partners included:

Marina Theatre – Lowestoft, FlipSide, DanceEast, originalprojects;, Reprezent Project, SeaChange Arts, Enjoy Great Yarmouth, Lowestoft Rising, Time and Tide Museum of Great Yarmouth Life, Norfolk Museums Service, Association for Suffolk Museums, Great Yarmouth Preservation Trust, Lowestoft Vision (Discover Lowestoft), Great Yarmouth Town Centre.

The film was created by young creative Joshua Freemantle – Creative, who is only 17 years old and a Lowestoft local.
