Art by Kayley Passingham - BA (Hons) Art and the Environment
WUC partnership with Estuary 2021
On 9th March 2021, 1st and 2nd year students from BA (Hons) Art and the Environment presented to the arts organisation Metal their responses to a live brief to create artworks and designs for possible inclusion in the Estuary 2021 festival. The resulting artworks and designs have been shared on Estuary 2021's social media channels and BA (Hons) Art and the Environment student Kayley Passingham has been invited to run the children's workshops she proposed in the presentations during Estuary 2021 on Sat 12th and Sun 13th June (see www.estuaryfestival.com/events.html for more details).
About Estuary 2021
Estuary 2021 is taking place between 22 May – 13 June 2021 at multiple sites along the Essex and Kent shorelines: www.estuaryfestival.com @estuaryfestival
Estuary is a largescale arts festival curated in response to the spectacular Thames Estuary and the lives, landscapes and histories found there. It takes place every four years.
Estuary 2021 is an ambitious, highly visible and transformational programme of work, linked to an innovative skills programme delivered through a wide range of arts and agency partnerships across the region. It is made possible through Creative Estuary, an ambitious long-term project to develop the Thames Estuary into the world’s largest creative corridor and a world leader for the creative and cultural industries. Estuary 2021 is led by a partnership between estuary-based arts organisations Metal (South Essex) and Cement Fields (North Kent).
Metal provides innovative, multi-disciplinary residencies and development opportunities for artists from the UK and overseas, from its spaces in Southend, Liverpool and Peterborough. www.metalculture.com @MetalSouthend
