Totally Thames 2019- Call for Ideas for Events and Projects

If you’ve got an idea for a creative and accessible event or project that holds the River Thames at its heart then make sure you read the guidance notes and submit to the open call by Friday 5 April.

Totally Thames is an annual season of surprising, diverse and accessible arts and culture along the 42-mile stretch of the Thames. It is curated and managed by the Thames Festival Trust, working collaboratively with artists, local communities, river interest organisations and businesses to bring the river alive every September.


Everyone is welcome to apply to join the programme, and the trust is eager to support artists, creatives, producers, river enthusiasts, young people, heritage professionals and businesses from all backgrounds to submit exciting and new ideas that hold the River Thames at their heart.

The trust wants people to think outside the box presenting either indoor or outdoor events, installations or activities that are in, on, by, beneath and about the river that encourage audience members to interact with and consider it in new ways.


There are two open surgeries in March if you have any questions and you need to submit your idea by 5 April.
