Take the Ignite Survey – tell us what Chelmsford’s creative community need!

Ignite have launched a survey to understand the needs of Chelmsford’s creative community, so that future work can focus on what is most important.

The survey is for everyone who has an interest in culture or creativity in Chelmsford!

Please take 10 minutes to complete the survey here.

We are interested in everyone’s views on what support is needed for creative businesses and individuals across Chelmsford, as well as what Ignite should look like in the future. Current members of Ignite will also have the chance to tell us their experiences of our events and engagement so far.

Feedback from the survey will be used for a number of important things:

  • Improving what Ignite offers – Making our events and engagement more relevant, interesting and inclusive for Chelmsford’s vibrant creative community.
  • Informing the work of our partners, Culture Chelmsford – A charitable Trust working to raise the cultural impact and profile of Chelmsford through fundraising, strategy and capacity building.
  • Understanding what Chelmsford’s creative community looks like – Shaping the training and capacity building activity on offer for our creative people and businesses.
  • And of course feeding into the Cultural Strategy for Chelmsford.

This is the start of more regular engagement with Ignite members and the wider community, to own and shape what we do, and to continue to build a powerful voice for Chelmsford’s creative community. We would like to hear from all parts of Chelmsford, and from different groups and communities, to be part of the future of Ignite – so please pass this on to anyone you think will be interested.

Join Ignite here for free, and come along to one of our socials and talks or online discussions. Or join our mailing list here, to receive updates on our latest work and events.

Remembering Essex Witches

Witches are a common sight this time of year, casting spells with a cackle in spooky Halloween displays. But these seasonal cartoon hags are a far cry from the real ‘witches’ of Essex who form part of a much darker history in our county. During the 16th and 17th...
