originalprojects; is an artist-led charity who have been working in Great Yarmouth since 2016. They connect contemporary artists with people, communities and place, co-creating objects and experiences, and providing developmental opportunities that build relationships for a durable future.
A major element of their work is the transformation of redundant retail spaces into vital community and cultural hubs which are home to artists' studios, exhibition space and venues for community activity (including PRIMEYARC in a former Debenhams in Market Gates Shopping Centre).
They also produce YARMONICS (an annual festival of sound and new music) in collaboration with Eastern Ear and Finding Emerson (a biennial festival of photography) in collaboration with Utter Nonsense commission public artworks (including one-twelfth, a series of 1:12 scale public works for Merrivale Model Village which are then placed in the public realm), produce podcasts, run workshops, organise conferences exploring the value of creative activity to society and much more.
