Made in Corby is a community-led arts programme, producing events and activites in order to surprise, delight and inspire the locals. We aim to inspire more local Corby people to take the lead in experiencing, creating and taking part in high-quality arts/cultural activities. Working with the local people and decision-making panels, Made in Corby puts local people are the centre of commissioning artists and producing new and exciting events.

What makes Made in Corby different
Made in Corby’s approach is quite simply about ‘doing with audiences rather than creating for them.
Made in Corby is part of a national Creative People & Places network, funded by Arts Council England to increase engagement in the arts in areas where people have fewer opportunities to get involved.
