Thurrock Art Trail 2017

Welcome to the official Thurrock Art Trail website!

Thank you to everyone who was involved in this year’s Trail. The Trail was the biggest, most inclusive and far reaching yet to happen in the borough, and the largest event in the Essex Summer of Arts calendar. What a positive sign of the direction Thurrock’s creative scene is moving in!

Unfortunately, it has been decided that we won’t be organizing another Art Trail for next year, as it takes a monumental amount of effort to coordinate a two week event with over 60 artists, 30 venues, 10+ events and the website using only the dedication of a handful of volunteers and part-time, short term staff.

However, we don’t want this to affect the opportunities for networking and collaboration in the creative scene, and so we would like to use this website as a hub for people to share their creative opportunities, and facilitate a directory of creatives in the borough. If you’d like to have your website, social media pages and artwork hosted on a ‘creative directory’ page on this site, please message us via our Facebook page.

Thanks for all your support over the last six years. To learn a bit more about some of the creative endeavours going on in the area, check out last year’s Programme, which is jam packed with interviews and articles by some of Thurrock’s foremost artists and art groups
