A new virtual hub has been launched to help boost the arts and cultural sector in Lowestoft.
The Lowestoft Virtual Creative Hub has been unveiled for creative people and enterprises working in and around the town.
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.
