Grays Street Festival 2014

In July I was responsible for running the Grays Street Festival for 2014 for Thurrock International Celebration of Culture. 

I was so proud of the outcome, there were professional and local artists all performing in the high street, on a busy market Saturday. This was free of charge for anyone who was around on that day.

Our video of the 2014 festival is now available!

Thurrock International Celebration of Culture needs you!

TICC is looking for a new Chair of the board and 2 Trustees to join us at this exciting time in our development.

We have been running for the past 4 years, holding a street festival for three of those (we didn’t in 2012 due to the Olympics).

Our major goal is by 2022 TICC to be established as a recognisable brand in the creative and cultural industry, valued by members of the local and wider community
Plans are underway for the 2015 street festival, but we want to grow into more than just a festival, we want to be promoting events all through the year.

We are in a stable financial position with a reasonable budget for next year, but we want trustees to help us grow our funds into more money to do bigger projects.

For our chair we want someone who is:

  • A Thurrock resident
  • Passionate about community arts
  • Entrepreneurial
  • Prepared to look at things differently
  • Fresh to the political scene
  • Committed to alternative monthly meetings and conference calls
  • Ready to roll their sleeves up and drive change in Thurrock

For our trustees we want you to be:

  • A Thurrock resident
  • Passionate about community arts
  • Supporting and developing change in Thurrock through the arts
  • Bring specialist skills or local contacts – accounting, technology, local business groups, social media, fundraising, potential sponsors etc.
