What is Contaɪnər?
Contaɪnər Projects is located in one of the shipping containers on the site of the former Youth Centre, opposite Kingston Playing Field, now owned by Jetty Lane C.I.C.
The project was initially a creative response to the Covid crisis, where we felt the need to use our creativity as artists to reach out to the community. Following a successful programme for parents and young children delivered through covid restrictions, Contaɪnər Projects ongoing programming will focus on families and new parents, as well as projects with rural communities.
We are committed to the 2010 Equality Act and 1998 Human Rights Act by developing an organisational culture that respects equality and human rights and welcomes and respects difference and diversity in all aspects of our work.
Any one assisting or leading a workshop will have up-to-date enhanced DBS checks.
We would like to thank East Suffolk Council, Councillor Rachel Smith-Lyte and Councillor Ray Herring for supporting this project and our programming. This project is also grateful for the support of the charity Home-Start.

Contaɪnər Projects was founded by May Cornet, Alice Andrea Ewing and Emily Richardson in 2020. May Cornet has continued to deliver additional Me Time programmes with the support of HomeStart. Please follow the Contaɪnər Projects instagram for more information on this series.
