This summer we have had the opportunity to mentor a hugely talented group of young Suffolk artists.
They came to us with a plan to set up a collective from various disciplines, such as design, film making, performance art, fashion and photography.
was born and they are already creating exciting projects in Suffolk and beyond.
They are in the process of making a film with a hugely influential member of the fashion community, Caryn Franklin. We approached Caryn to see if she would be interested in mentoring the group. Caryn suggested making a film with YAIS about how to get into the creative industry. It has been a very exciting project and Caryn’s input has been so important to the group’s development. Watch this space to see more about this exciting project.
In the meantime here are a few photos from backstage at the shoot with Caryn. The location was Hullabalo, a wonderful vegan cafe in St Peter’s Street Ipswich – make sure you visit and try the amazing waffles!
YAIS are also working on a Launch Party to be held at the Pacitti Company based at the old art school in Ipswich. It is a great venue and perfect for the group to showcase their talent. The show will include work from fine artists, fashion designers, film makers and performance artists and promises to be a unique and fabulous evening!
Shout About Suffolk was created to nurture entrepreneurial talent in Suffolk, it is therefore so fitting that we can also support the future stars – there is no doubt that Suffolk will be hearing much more from YAIS in the future!
