Our festival needs you

Monday 31 July 2017

Whether you are in a group that already meets, friends who want to try something new or someone who wants to make a difference, we are offering you the chance to host an event and be part of Art of the Possible. 

We are looking for hosts to showcase what is great about Essex and help shape the place you live. Our only request is that the event you host helps make your community stronger and makes a difference in your neighbourhood. This could be anything from tackling loneliness, bonding with others over your passions, or improving your local surroundings.

Here are a few examples to give you some ideas on how you can get involved; 

  • Do you have a passion that you want to share? Host an event celebrating your hobby and invite others to try it out
  • Are you regularly attending a club or group? Invite new members along for a taster session
  • Got an idea for a new local group? Launch your idea at the festival 
  • Is there something you want to improve in your area? Ask the community to help you do it
  • Are you great at something? Share your skills with others by hosting a masterclass.

If you are feeling inspired but still have questions you can email us at or submit your idea to the team.
