The Summer of Culture Guide

Summer of Culture cover

Our Summer of Culture Guide showcases our partnered programme of events and activities, aimed at helping you embrace the culture you’ve missed, whilst retaining positive connections with the natural world that so many of us have made during the last year.

The programme centres around three key strands; nature, climate, and people – and aims to highlight the importance of our connection with green spaces for both mental and physical wellbeing.

The guide is full of exciting upcoming events - including the Essex Book Festival, Kinetika Beach of Dreams and the Essex Cultural Diversity Project - as well as information about the Essex Climate Action Commission and how you can get involved. Learn more about how we're bringing communities together and connecting them with their local green spaces through a programme of events.

And discover our recommended reads, curated by Kinetika, to inspire, educate and provoke action alongside fantastic competitions!
