About the Event
A celebratory event day that will coincide with Kinetika’s regional project Beach of Dreams , a 500mile walk from Lowestoft to Tilbury bringing with it 500 silk pennants that will be placed on the foreshore to create a spectacular welcome for our arrival at the beach from the High Street.
Throughout the day there will be workshops and performances arranged by the Thameside Theatre, and other organisations, providing arts engagement opportunities for local artists, community groups and individuals. T100 local artists will deliver arts activities on the day to capture the community response to the aim of cleaning up Grays – ‘our river, our foreshore, our way of life.’
Grays Yacht Club will organise a race at the end of the afternoon with the Beach of Dreams silks setting sail into the sunset as we reflect on our aspiration of a plastic free beach-front and a clean future for our great great grandchildren.
