Community Voices is how YOU tell us what cultural activity you want to see in Basildon.
As a Community Voice, you’ll get to:
Support decision-making and help develop the Creative BasildON programme
Get free tickets to all Creative BasildON events and other selected cultural events
Support from Creative BasildON to develop your own projects and cultural events
Networking opportunities with a range of people across Basildon borough
And a free dinner, served at all our Community Voice meetings!
Creative BasildON is here to grow an ambitious, Borough-wide arts programme, working with residents to make it happen. This means more people, engaging with more arts activity, more often, in places local to them. We believe that access to arts and culture can tackle inequality, break down barriers and change people’s lives for the better.
We’re looking to connect with as many people as possible – whether you’re an interested local resident, an am-dram expert, are involved in a community group, host a band-night, a business owner, a jobbing creative at any level – or anything in between – we’d love you to tell us who you are and where you’re based, so we can get you involved.
Our creative programme is driven by five community voice forums across Basildon, Billericay, Wickford, Laindon and Pitsea. Our Community Commissioners meet 4 times a year to help us programme high-quality arts activity and events in the borough’s five towns.
