Steampunk The Thames Inc is a voluntary organization run by a dedicated committee of seven who want to bring art, festivities, tourism and economic development to Thames, as well as bringing our community together to celebrate our town. We have come together because we believe that the arts matter; that their practice can transform our lives and promote our community as a wonderful place to live, work, play and visit.
We have created an annual festival to celebrate Thames’ own blend of art, heritage and culture; inspire and stimulate local talent; showcase local art and creativity and attract visitors to our town to join us in the festivities.
We are supported by some amazing local businesses and organizations around Thames as well as some incredible programs that help us create incredible Steampunk events.
Our goals as an organization are to –
- Give people an avenue to express themselves through the arts, specifically through the exploration of engineering, industrial, scientific and technological heritage
- To encourage public expressions of Steampunk and related genres through different artistic mediums
- Support and encourage education, mentoring, and training opportunities of arts within the community.
- Support, promote and expose art and artists of any and every description for the benefit of the community and members of the Society.
- To strengthen and build community through steampunk-themed initiatives and projects
- Promote economic development and tourism in Thames.
