Essex 2020 Meeting

Friday 13 December, 2pm-4pm

Come to JMT on Friday 13 December from 2pm-4pm to see how you can get involved in the Essex 2020 celebration!

Signals Media is the North Essex and Tendring hub for Essex 2020 Year of Science and Creativity and will be holding the first of their Tendring Hub Meetings at the Tower, hopefully being the first meeting of a regular series running throughout 2020 and beyond.

These cross sector events are designed to bring together people who are:

- Developing, or interested in developing, activities under the broad Essex 2020 science and creativity umbrella.

- Willing and able to support them to put their ideas into action.

Essex 2020 is a year-long, county-wide celebration of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM) in Essex. Inspired by the prestigious British Science Festival , which comes to Chelmsford in 2020 (the first time the festival has come to Essex in its 189-year history), Essex 2020 will present a 12-month complementary programme of STEAM-related exhibitions, festivals, performances, workshops, conferences, trails and more for everyone to enjoy across Essex, Southend and Thurrock.
