Creative People & Places

BasildON Creative People & Places is a programme funded by Arts Council England that is dedicated to getting the community choosing, creating and taking part in art experiences in Basildon.

HAVE YOU SEEN CHRISTINE’S COLLAGE CHALLENGE?

Keep your eyes peeled for an exciting activity pack we are sending out to the local community. The pack highlights Basildon’s rich heritage, as we believe that art and culture is for everyone. Inside it you will find collage templates depicting inspirational individuals who were born or have lived in Basildon Borough.

We’ve also included everything you will need to make your collages including, scissors, glue and lots of vibrant materials and papers.

Plus, if you send them back you can win goodies and prizes! So get involved!

ABOUT THE PROGRAMME

In November 2019 we were awarded a whopping £1,289,002 to fund the 4 year programme, which will provide creative and cultural opportunities for all and most importantly puts the community in the driving seat.

The programme will enable the community to direct cultural activity in Basildon, which will take the shape of murals, pop-up cultural activity, festivals, a new cultural venue and much, much more!

Things Made Public are the lead applicant for the BasildON Creative People & Places funding application. This means that over the next four years we will be overseeing the delivery of the programme, working with the Basildon consortium to ensure that the funding, strategic support and governance are in place, enabling the programme to thrive!
