Young people across Suffolk are being encouraged to get involved to help shape a libraries arts programme.

The Suffolk Libraries Youth Council is looking for opinionated and passionate young people aged between the ages of 11 to 25 to influence the creative direction of the Suffolk Libraries Arts Programme – BLOC (Building Libraries On Creativity).

The new BLOC programme has distinct themes of film and digital, literature, music and dance, arts and create and wellbeing and inclusion.

A taster day is being held at Lowestoft Library from 11am to 3pm next Wednesday, October 24 to give young people a chance to have their say, make a difference and test out some pilot projects.

All young people are welcome to come along to share their views, test new creative projects and find out more about becoming a board member. Spaces can be booked online and there is more information about BLOC at
