Beach of Dreams is an epic journey to discover the hidden gems of the East Coast of England, inviting collaboration from communities and artists along the way in Suffolk, Essex, Southend, and Thurrock.


Kinetika’s Artistic Director, Ali Pretty, and Guardian journalist Kevin Rushby are walking the entire route, joined by artists, writers, scientists, and local residents.  Together, guided by strong environmental themes and the challenges of our current time, they will consider the question “How can we creatively reimagine our future?”

Get involved, share a location, and share your dream!  


When the Beach of Dreams reaches Thurrock it will be part of the 2021 Festival - T100 Dreaming. 

This year we are inviting ourselves, our neighbours and our communities to Dream. The Festival aims to celebrate and share the individual dreams collected as part of the Beach of Dreams project as a collective community dream; for a sustainable, creative, and cohesive future for Thurrock.


I will be in touch again soon with more details about how you can get involved with the T100 Dreaming Festival this year but for now, we would love you, your family and friends, local groups to join the journey and get involved by signing up to one or more of the 500 miles as the walk travels up the Thames Estuary from Shoeburyness to Tilbury. 


Everyone is invited to choose a mile to walk, submit an image of the landscape, a drawing and a few words about your connection to it and your dream for its future.  All words and photos sent in will contribute to a new digital story map of the coastal path, reflecting and recording the narrative of the walk as it unfolds
