Exciting things to look out for this September!

The team at Cece Luna are busy collating the Thurrock Island artworks from the community to create a storybook and an online art gallery which will be unveiled at Thurrock Festival Digital on 19th September 2020.

We also have another exciting surprise instore for you, during the summer the team at Cece Luna have been busy creating a largescale costume and puppet called Mandi which will also be unveiled at Thurrock Festival this year! Mandi is made entirely from recycled and repurposed materials and will greet the T100 walkers as they enter Grays Wharf for Kinetika’s Spring Clean Mandala Making Activity on 19th September 2020. We are excited to share with you more information about Mandi very soon.
