How does Colchester inspire you?

We’d love to hear from local creatives about creative life in Colchester. We’ve created the #MyCreativeColchester campaign to boost the voices of all creative individuals and to highlight the opportunities and challenges of being a creative person living and working in Colchester.

We’re asking our members to submit a visual story in your chosen medium
– whatever that may be – along with a written blurb covering such topics as:

  • What Creativity in Colchester means to you
  • How Colchester has helped you mould your creative career
  • What local opportunities does Colchester offer
  • What you’d like to see in Colchester’s creative future

Your submission can be anything from a photograph, original art, written word or anything you can create! The top entries will earn a spotlight on the featured creatives section for a month.

While we encourage new members, if you’re not quite ready to create a profile to submit your work online, share your story to your chosen social media platform, tagging Creative Colchester and using the hashtag #MyCreativeColchester. Entries will be curated bi-weekly across social media.

We look forward to seeing your stories!
