Over the past 3 years, Kinetika’s project, Thurrock 100, has mapped and explored 31 local walks, run a dance programme and published a book of 100 local stories and engaged with literally thousands of people.
This year’s walking programme runs between the 7th and 22nd July and will be incorporating the diverse food cultures which exist across the area, and by introducing a new 2-year Kitchen Table project, they aim to explore the stories of the diverse communities from around the world who have settled along the lower Thames Estuary.
A special date for your diary is 20th June when a SCREEN PRINTING WORKSHOP for adults only, is being held between 10am and 6pm. This workshop is going to be producing a silk tablecloth, which will be carried on all the walks and then laid out in style on Saturday 21st July to celebrate the Chilean Community Feast in La Cocina Publica at the Port of Tilbury.
This workshop will be supervised by artist, Sofie Layton, and held at the Kinetika Studio, 119 Artists Studios, High House Production Park, Artisan Way, Off Purfleet Bypass, Purfleet, Essex RM19 1AS.

Listen again here to what Julie told me about how they are linking food experiences into the T100 Recipe walks which are being especially planned and led by volunteers well-versed in the geography and history of the area: –
In the second hour today we heard about the council workmen, who might feel that they ought to go back to school for some extra tuition, after they misspelt the word SCHOOL in the road outside the entrance to a primary school in the Wirral.
I’m not here tomorrow so I’ll see you next on Thursday,
