Stand Up For Diversity Thurrock
Wednesday 13 March 6.30 – 8.00pm
Grays Gurdwara

You are invited to an evening of three-minute mini-talks and soap-box shout-outs that puts a spotlight on diversity.

For this event Essex Cultural Diversity Project has teamed up with Start Thurrock, who has a vision where more people in Thurrock can enjoy and participate in arts and cultural activity in their local area.

Come along to make new connections, find out more about what’s in your area, promote your own projects, and collectively celebrate diverse voices involved in the arts today. There will be food and refreshments as part of the event, kindly provided by the Sikh community at Grays Gurdwara.

Start Thurrock is supported by Arts Council England through the Creative People and Places programme.
