As a Creative Pioneer, you can help select arts and culture projects that take place in Basildon over the next 3 years. 

In collaboration with other Creative Pioneers you’ll provide insight into which creative projects you think people in Basildon would like to see, what matters to local communities, and how we can show the creative side of Basildon at its best.

To become a Creative Pioneer you just need to live, work or study in the Basildon Borough.

That’s it! You don’t need any particular skills, experience or background and we want to involve people from all walks of life, with a wide variety of interests.

By volunteering with us you will:

  • Join a thriving community of Creative Pioneers who are all committed to making a difference in Basildon
  • Receive vouchers in exchange for your time and input
  • Gain unique experience for your CV, college or university application
  • Build skills in communication, problem solving and team working. 
  • Flexible hours and days that suit your lifestyle and commitments
  • Meet new people and work alongside local and national artists
  • Access further unique opportunities to contribute to BasildON as a volunteer or help with project delivery.

For the moment, most of our decision making takes place digitally through online meetings, panels and polls. You can expect to commit roughly 2 hours a month to your role as a Creative Pioneer.

If you think arts and culture isn’t for you, you are exactly who we are looking for.
