CHALLENGING INEQUALITY BY EMPOWERING PEOPLE TO TRANSFORM THEIR LIVES THROUGH LEARNING AND CREATIVITY
Ipswich Community Media was launched in 2015 by a group of people with a shared vision to serve the local community through music, media, the creative arts and language learning.
ICM’s focus is rooted in a deep belief in fairness and social justice to work with those at the very margins of society to make Ipswich a better place for all.
All of our offerings are free at the point of access because we passionately believe that open access for the most disadvantaged in our community is vital for a healthy inclusive society.
We are based just off Norwich Road in Ipswich, one of the most diverse and exciting areas of our town. It is also an area with many challenges, as Westgate Ward is one of the most deprived wards in the country. But with around a third of local residents from migrant and refugee communities we are proud to be part of such a diverse neighbourhood.
Our Charitable Objectives:
To advance education of the public in communication skills through media, ESOL, and information technology
To develop the capacity and skills of the economically and socially disadvantaged in the East of England
Promotion of Equality and Diversity by
Promoting activities to foster understanding between people of diverse backgrounds.
Cultivating sentiment in favour of equality and diversity.
