Join CBD and discover the work of other local artists and gallery spaces in Essex and hear about their practices and how their work reflects the heritage of the area. We will discover more about the project Radical Essex from Hayley Dixon. A project re-examining the county in relation to radicalism in thought, lifestyle, politics and architecture at Focal Point Gallery Essex’s gallery for contemporary visual art. We will be able to see the exhibit of John Wonnacott’s exhibition ‘The Estuary’ that will be available to visit between 4 May to 7 July.

As a group we can then decide on the activities for the rest of our time in Southend. There is plenty to discover. Metal, The Beecroft Art Gallery, The Old Waterworks artist studios hosting Grrrl Zine Library and the Agency of Visible Women, and if you just fancy a stroll along the pier we can enjoy the amazing photography along the walk.
