Open Lab - Creative BasildON

Open Lab is a brand new programme from BasildON Creative People and Places that supports innovative and creative, community engagement projects in Basildon. 

This opportunity is open to individuals, collectives and organisations, from the local area or further afield. Open Lab commissions creatively reimagine public spaces, whether that’s empty shop units, street corners, public parks, social clubs to name but a few.
