Corby residents are being asked to get involved to decide how the latest funding for arts and community projects is to be spent in the town.

Made With Many - formerly Made In Corby - is inviting residents from across the town and especially the Exeter, Lloyds, Kingswood and Hazel Leys estates to have their say.

The volunteers will sit as a panel and through their discussions select an artist who will work with the communities on a project for six months.

A Made With Many spokesman said: "Local people are the focus of what Made With Many do.

"Panels of local people, formed through focus groups, community panels, and consultation events, help to make our decisions. This means that we can be confident in delivering what the Corby community want to experience.

"You don’t need to be an artist or know how the arts world works because we’re looking for people with a passion for their community or the arts.

"If you’re willing to give some of your time, in return, we promise tea, biscuits, and lively discussion."

Volunteers can be from a wide range of backgrounds and Made With Many is looking for arts enthusiasts, community champions, and local residents who want to use their skills, expertise, and networks to help others.

The panel will meet monthly from September 2020 to provide feedback to the project leading up to the celebration events in March 2021 - the first meeting of the panel will take place provisionally on Wednesday, July 22 at 6pm via Zoom.

Residents of the Corby borough who wish to take part can email [email protected] or call Tom on 07923 221759 for more information.
