BasildON Creative People and Places will redefine what culture means to the people of Basildon, celebrating and valuing all Basildon people and cultures in all their glory. Together, we will create a place that champions people to embrace and value their creativity individually and collectively.  A place that believes that there is no 'right'way to get creative. A creative place with 185,000 creative people.

BasildON is designed to empower the whole community – residents and businesses alike – to create a cultural democracy. The four-year programme will develop a wide-range of activities and projects that give everyone the opportunity to be involved in shaping Basildon’s cultural and creative future. At its heart, the project aims to encourage learning, cohesive working, innovation and aspiration.

BasildON is a new Creative People and Places project, funded from November 2019.
