Made in Corby have received a grant from the ScottishPower Foundation for a year-long programme of creative activities for over 65’s, culminating in a weekend-long event at The Core at Corby Cube with performances, exhibitions and workshops. We’ll be working with older people in 3 settings across Corby to enable older people to be more creative across a range of art forms including visual arts, craft, photography, dance, music and theatre. The settings include Corby Library and two residential settings. All of Made in Corby’s work is delivered in collaboration with the community.
We are looking for artists to run a block of weekly sessions with older people, to co-create work to be shown at the event in March 2020. We are open to suggestions of how work is shared and would envisage a mix of performances, films and exhibitions. Artists may also be invited to lead an open workshop as part of the weekend.
The brief is attached below, please read for more information!
Deadline for Applications: 9am on Monday 15th April 2019.
