Working in partnership through local and regional connections runs through all our Estuary 2020 programming.
If you are an artist, arts organisation, school or community group based in North Kent or South Essex (or further afield), there are a number of opportunities to get involved in different ways.
Our Associated Programme Open Call offers the opportunity to share any programme you may have that is linked to the estuary.
The Water Replies is a large scale, participation programme for schools and people of all ages living alongside the estuary.
We currently also have a commission opportunity for two artists – offered through a partnership between Metal and Essex Cultural Diversity Project.
If you have time to spare and an interest in Volunteering, Estuary 2020 has a wide range of opportunities to help ensure a fantastic experience for our audiences.
During the festival month, we can offer Tours for Schools or Community Groups of artworks at different sites – led by an artist or curator, with workshop activity and/or discussion seminars. Details to be announced in Spring 2020.
Further details at the links below.
