Thurrock Island is a community participation project which invited the community to create artworks which have been used to create a storybook with themes of climate change, teamwork, diversity, and community. The artworks are also displayed at Thurrock Festival in September 2020.

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

Each week we launched a new art activity, here on our website and by uploading their artworks to the Thurrock Island Facebook Group or emailing them to us at , the Thurrock Community were in with a chance of having their artworks featured in the storybook.

For example, the drawings of houses were combined to populate the island and their characters were used to represent the community of the island and the surrounding sea.
