Essex Cultural Diversity Project has teamed up with Chelmsford City Council, to create an opportunity for artists to creatively respond to the rich story of Chelmsford as a city and district, its heritage and ambitions for the future.
A key aim of this place-based commission is to celebrate diversity, as well as harness and explore digital innovation as part of Essex2020 – Year of Science and Creativity. We are particularly interested in looking at Chelmsford’s rivers and waterways; how they connect people and places, and form an integral part of the area’s environment and cultural, agricultural and industrial history.
UPDATE: We are delighted to announce that artist Sian Fan has been appointed for the Chelmsford & Essex2020 Artist Commission, a partnership between Chelmsford City Council and Essex Cultural Diversity Project.

Bridge building competition
The CSES Build a Bridge Competition is now closed and we thank all those who made the effort and took the time to submit an entry. With entries across a very wide age range, judging proved to be very difficult, but the quality of effort throughout and ingenuity applied to the challenge by everyone has been beyond our imagination! Well done to all participants.
Bridge building competition winners announced
We know that CSES events matter to our members, and that it is especially important to keep our community alive and connected during these unusual times.
We are therefore moving many of our planned events to a virtual setting, and will reschedule the remainder. Our partner organisations are doing the same.
Please keep an eye on the events section for the revised programme. Members who are subscribed to email updates will continue to receive these as usual.
If you have any queries, please do get in touch via the usual channels. All administrative operations continue as normal and the committee is continuing to hold its monthly meetings virtually.
Thank you for your understanding and best wishes for the coming months. Stay safe!
