All the arts events and activities that take place as part of the Creative Barking and Dagenham programme are chosen by local residents (our Cultural Connectors) working with artistic advisers and strategic partners. We currently have four programme strands, with projects happening across Barking and Dagenham involving a wide range of art forms. These include REACH, Get Creative, Festivals and the Partnership Programme. For all the events, from steering groups and panel meetings, Cultural Connectors get-togethers and deadlines for our opportunities take a look at the calendar below!
