My Creative Colchester Campaign Launches

The Creative Colchester initiative has gone from strength to strength and the heart of the project has always been the people that make up our great creative & digital community – a community that we’re continuing to nurture and expand over the next few years.

As part of our ongoing strategy, we’ve launched the #MyCreativeColchester campaign to champion the diverse voices of creative individuals who live and work in and around Colchester. We want to bring into focus the many possibilities and opportunities open to those seeking to be more involved in the creative community while also highlighting the important challenges facing those who work in the many creative & digital industries out there. And most importantly going forward, what we can do to ensure a thriving creative culture for future generations.

We’re asking local creatives to submit a visual story in your chosen medium – whether it be a photo, an illustration, or simply a story that’s personal to you. We want to know what creativity means to you and how Colchester has helped you mould your creative career.

What opportunities does Colchester currently offer and where you see Colchester’s creative future heading.


How to Submit

If you’re a member, head to the #MyCreativeColchester page to submit your story. Alternatively, you can 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 and members will earn a featured spot in the directory, alongside promotion over on our social channels.

We are a growing community held together by our common goals and passions, so please like and share to get as many local creatives involved as possible.
