We are a city of innovative, resilient people and businesses who have the know-how and the resources to get through this – together.
Ipswich City Council is launching Ipswich Together, a response and recovery campaign to address the impacts of COVID-19 on the community, business, cultural and sporting groups across our city. Ipswich Together includes a range of community and council events and initiatives over the coming months to support our community through the pandemic.
Council has already actioned a number of responses to support the community through this time:
While many of our favourite events and festival have been cancelled, we have planned a series of activations that can be enjoyed from the comfort of your own home or yard:
Festival of 4 Walls
We all know how important self-isolation is, but it doesn't have to be boring right? So many people are mourning the loss of their favourite events and festivals that have been postponed or cancelled due to Covid 19, the fun, the festivities and even the food! So we thought "why can't we take it online"! Let's create a completely virtual festival that allows you to hear, see and even taste the things you love most about your favourite festivals. A festival to be enjoyed within your own 4 Walls and a way Ipswich Festivals can continue to support local artists and performers. Think live performances, workshops and activities for the kids, food truck favourites (you can cook at home) and much, much more. You can even bring your friends, just tag them in the posts and watch live together.
