Artists

Throughout the programme, there will be many opportunities for local, national and international artists to contribute to the programme. We’ll be looking for local artists to deliver taster workshops for Big Days In and artistic mentors to help our communities make decisions.

If you have experience in creating work in collaboration with communities, or are passionate about the social impact of art, then please do get in touch or join our mailing list to be informed of opportunities as they are announced.

What Next? Corby Launch

We are also launching a What Next? Corby Chapter to bring together those who are passionate about the role of arts and culture in Corby. We will be exploring the position of arts and culture in the life of our town, whether through well-being, visitor economy or local policy, and using our discussions to shout about the value of culture locally. There will be guest speakers in attendance at some meetings and a mixture of discussions about topics of your choice.

For information and updates on our What Next? launch, visit our blog information page here, sign up to our newsletter and check out our Facebook group for What Next? too.

Arts Networking

We have also launched our quarterly Arts Networking sessions at the Rooftop Arts Centre for those wishing to engage with others about the arts. Networking is a great tool for finding other groups and artists to collaborate with, and this session is the perfect opportunity to do so with many local artists in attendance.

This session is free to attend but there will be a chance for donations to Made In Corby. There will also be light refreshments available.
