"“Hi! I’m Emily. I am excited to be part of the Container Projects team setting up and running a space that will fulfill a need for creative provision for the community, offering workshops, events and a welcoming place to meet. Having raised two children in a rural area of Suffolk I understand the social isolation experienced by many living outside the town and the need for a creative social space in Woodbridge. I am an artist filmmaker and have run community projects that use film playfully, including working with local families to create a giant chain reaction film made by children and their parents from recycled waste and a cardboard shadow cinema where children wrote and directed their own shadow puppet films based on the fairytale paper cut out films of Lottie Reiniger. These projects involved parents and children working together creatively which was beneficial to all involved."
