From Southend to Margate, the Thames Estuary is a region of untold creative potential.

Who we’re looking for:

We are looking for four individuals in South Essex and North Kent with a passion for arts and culture, and an interest in arts commissioning in particular, to join the Commissioning Group as it embarks on an ambitious new set of commissions for 2021/22.

As a member of the group you will offer advice and guidance to the team and provide strategic support so as to ensure that the commissions maximise their creative impact, engagement and legacy.
