First Flight exhibition and installations filled Lowestoft with vibrant art over the weekend of 26th and 27th June 2021.

Some of these wonderful creations can now be found at Carlton Marshes nature reserve, Suffolk Wildlife Trust.

First Flight participating artists have responded to the concept of a bird box in ways that reflect their practice.  These largely ephemeral works highlight the significance of Lowestoft and Carlton Marshes for migrating birds and raising awareness of the importance of habitats for birds, especially in an urban environment.

A huge thank you to all of the local, regional and national artists who have taken part.

See below for a list of participating artists.
