Welcome to the home for Chelmsford’s creative community. A place to connect with fellow creative people, and collaborate with others that can enrich your work. A place to seek support and inspiration from one another. A place that can ignite a passion for Chelmsford’s cultural identity and future.

Ignite Chelmsford has been connecting people from all backgrounds, sectors, and organisations since 2017. Our mission is to give our city a shared voice and a strong creative community. We have launched this website to bring together this collaborative work and to grow it.

Events

Our events are hosted in the city as well as online. Attend our monthly socials and regular creative events to enjoy a relaxed, place to meet and share ideas, helping ideas to grow and take hold. Our online, monthly Hub events are an ideal platform to promote what you are doing and call out for collaboration.
