the heart of Suffolk's wonderfully diverse communities, and has an exciting future ahead of it.

Elma has invested her heart and soul into getting the organisation off the ground, taking care of the administration, as well as overseeing the Power of Stories tour.

She has closely collaborated with co-directors on delivering other grant-funded projects: Elimu - the Little Book of Knowledge, which was created in partnership with local museums; and Ipswich-based cultural education projects.

Although Elma is moving on, she will remain involved in Aspire as an advisor and advocate, whilst focusing on inclusive engagement and cultural projects and delivering

training locally and nationally. We'd like to wish her the very best and thank her for all of her hard work, which began back in February 2020. Give Elma a follow on her socials!

But we're not going anywhere!

We're making plans to deliver more grant-funded projects for young people, which focus on equality, and personal and skills development. Follow our socials (below) for news!
