A Salvaged Thurrock is an exciting community project we set up to help raise awareness and tackle the problem of fly-tipping in Thurrock, provide young people in the borough with creative opportunities and encourage local residents to engage with Thurrock’s history. In 2021 we will create an ensemble of young people aged 14-20 and, with the help of industry professionals, will devise a site-specific performance based on the history surrounding a local green space and perform it in that space. The set and props for the show will be created from items the company and ensemble find discarded in Thurrock which are then upcycled or ‘salvaged’.
Due to the current global pandemic we have had to postpone the practical workshops and performance (originally planned to take place in July 2020).
In the summer of 2020 we received funding to run a short online project called A Salvaged Thurrock: Online. Which you can find out more about by clicking here.
