Thurrock Arts Collective (TAC) is a constituted community group currently ran by myself alongside other artists in the local area between 2015 and 2018.
Our mission is to showcase, celebrate and provide a platform for artists and musicians of all genres, mediums and talent levels from anywhere along the Thames Estuary.
TAC was started by director/theatre maker Robert Awosusi, who saw a lack of communication, coherence and community among artists in South Essex, despite the obvious talent which exists here. Beginning as a humble Facebook group for local artists to share their work, events and opportunities, we now have three years experience of events organisation and facilitating, which has created paid performance opportunities for nearly 100 musicians and artists, as well as running stages and arts/performance painting workshops at local festivals.
