A Salvaged Thurrock is an exciting community project that was set up to help raise awareness and tackle the problem of fly-tipping in Thurrock, providing young people in the borough with creative opportunities and encouraging local residents to engage with Thurrock’s history.
Digital workshops in Jul/Aug were held via Zoom during the global pandemic for young people aged 14-20. Each focused on a different art form and led by an industry professional. The workshops covered Scenic Design/Illustration, Script-writing, Song-writing, Puppet Making and Puppetry.
A digital performance was created out of these workshops.
In 2021 Rendered Retina are planning to create an ensemble of young people aged 14-20 and, with the help of industry professionals, devise a site-specific performance based on the history surrounding a local green space and performed in that space. The set and props for the show will be created from items the company and ensemble find discarded in Thurrock which are then upcycled or ‘salvaged’.
