Coming soon to an Essex town or village near you aremore than 200 events and activities all for the good of the local community.

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

From the 14 to 31 October, the Art of the Possible is about promoting the good things that happen locally and to celebrate how these activities make real differences to peoples' lives. Bringing together communities across Essex, the festival will inspire and support a culture of 'shaping the places that we live' - you decide what you would like to see happen locally to you, and why not have a go this October?

Follow #AotP2017 on twitter and Facebook to be a part of the conversation - everyone's input is welcome.
