Welcoming a new member: Creative Estuary

Mar 2021

GCDN is delighted to present the newest member to join our network: Creative Estuary

Where the river meets the sea, the estuary is a place of production with an industrial legacy and a distinctively creative spirit. It has a long heritage as a maritime thoroughfare, with historic settlements and extraordinary stories, inspiring open spaces and rich heritage, from Chatham Historic Dockyard to Tilbury’s port and including the seaside resorts of Margate and Southend.

Creative Estuary is led by the University of Kent on behalf of a partnership of higher education, public, private sector and cultural organisations, working together to deliver the Thames Estuary Production Corridor, an ambitious thirty-year vision to unite east London, north Kent and south Essex as a world-class centre for creative and cultural production: leading global innovation, creating new jobs, developing local talent and supporting the rapid growth of the creative economy.
