Thurrock Island is a community participation project which invites the community to create artworks which will be used to create a storybook with themes of climate change, teamwork, diversity, and community. The artworks will also be displayed during Thurrock Festival Digital in September 2020.

The weekly activities will run from Friday 10th July 2020 until 31st August 2020.

Each week we will launch a new art activity, here on our website and by uploading your artworks to the Thurrock Island Facebook Group or emailing them to us at , you are in with a chance of having your artwork featured in the storybook.

For example, your drawings of houses will be combined to populate the island and your characters will be used to represent the community of the island and the surrounding sea.
