Residents and visitors have an opportunity to have their say about the Ipswich Arts & Museum project (I-AM), which will transform the Ipswich Museum into a fabulous visitor attraction focused on Ipswich’s culture, heritage, science and the arts.
An exhibition to explain the ambitious aims of the £23 million I-AM project opens at the Museum, High Street on Friday 20th February to Saturday 28th February. The exhibition then moves to the Town Hall from Tuesday 3rd to Saturday 7th March (10am to 5pm).
I-AM will attract thousands of visitors from all over the country and boost the local economy by bringing the town’s history and exciting visual and performing arts projects under one roof. Existing buildings will be connected for the first time and new display and performance spaces will be created. A café and shop, are also proposed, which will make I-AM the perfect place to spend a day or while away an hour or two. If the funding for the project can be secured, then the project will be complete in 2019.
