ForwardMotion sponsors Southend Festival 2019

Published: 19/06/19


We are delighted to be sponsoring the Southend Festival 2019. As part of our support for the festival, we organised an art competition with Southend BID to encourage the public to think differently about their travel habits. The challenge was to create a 2D piece of art that creatively communicates the benefits of active travel such as walking, cycling or using a bus or train.

We will soon announce the winning artist, who will have the opportunity to recreate their work on a large-scale piece of hoarding along Southend High Street. Runner up entries will be transformed into fully-realised artworks and displayed around Southend, creating a unique and colourful outdoor art gallery.

The six-week long Southend festival launched on Friday, 14 June. Some of Britain’s leading stand-up comedians, artists, bands and performers will partake in a diverse celebration of art and culture throughout the town centre and on the seafront.
