Cultural Programme – Call for Proposals

We are calling for proposals for two creative commissions that will be part of an exciting and ambitious cultural programme at High House Production Park, in Purfleet-on-Thames. The commissions will support creative practitioners to produce new work, develop their practice and create impactful, high-quality public engagement opportunities that draw on Purfleet on Thames’ past, present and future and contribute to the identity and awareness of High House Production Park.

The cultural programme and creative commissions form part of a significant co-investment in Purfleet-on-Thames that is about testing and demonstrating new practice in the role of culture in place-making, and is supported by Creative Estuary, Thurrock Council and High House Production Park.

To apply, please outline your proposal on no more than four pages of A4 and include the following information:

  • what you’d like to do
  • how your project will involve local communities
  • how your project will create a sense of place
  • who will benefit from your project
  • what difference the creative commission will make to your practice and what will the impact be on your work
  • how this supports your longer-term ambitions
  • where on the Park your project will take place
  • your connections to Thurrock
  • a budget breakdown
  • a timeline for the work
  • your experience delivering a project like this
