Art of the Possible Festival

Are you involved in a not for profit organisation or community group? Then coming soon to an Essex town or village near you, for the good of the local community - a Spooktacular Discovery of Social Media Tools, a Marketing Mixology, a Commercial Conundrum and a #Essex Crowdcrowdfunding workshop are just some of the events lined up to take place this October for the Art of the Possible Festival.

From the 14 to 31 October the Art of the Possible Festival will bring together communities across Essex to be involved in events to inspire and support a culture of shaping the place that you live.

With more than 200 regular activities and one-off events already listed, Art of the Possible is about promoting the good things that happen and to celebrate how these activities make real differences to peoples’ lives.

In addition to commercial thinking and marketing techniques, workshops and events focused on how to tackle funding; how to raise the voice of the people of Essex; or finding out how to get involved in the Essex Lottery, will be hosted with the aim of connecting and inspiring strong community bonds.

With both bookable and ‘just turn up’ events happening across the county, there is something to appeal to everyone.
