Engagement continues on new cultural and heritage strategy

17 September 2021
Working in partnership with local groups and residents, the council will lead the development of a new and innovative strategy to promote greater community participation and more opportunities to create, engage and experience culture, arts and heritage in Thurrock. The council has begun a process of engagement with residents and local groups to co-design and co-produce a new cultural strategy to ensure arts, culture, and heritage thrives across the entire borough.
