Meet an artist
Artists help us to imagine how the world can be different. It’s interesting to talk to new people, especially if they have a different way of looking at the world.
Where to start
Think about where artists work – visit one of the many sites in Southend like Focal Point Gallery, The Old Waterworks, Metal or TOMA. These places run workshops led by artists.
Think about all the different types of artists, and what you might be most interested in. Is it painting, performance, music, sculpture, video, dance? How could you meet someone that does this?
Attend one of Southend’s festivals, like Village Green, Leigh Art Trail or Southend Fringe Festival. Who knows who you might meet!
