The Eloquent Fold artists Carole Miles and Phiona Richards have been working together as socially engaged community artists since 2013. They are Associate Artists for Made with Many and in 2021 were awarded a Arts Council grant for the BeLonging project.
The project has been informed by conversations and workshops with women in Corby who are over fifty, reviewing the journeys and experiences that have given them a sense of belonging and highlighting all those things they still long to be.
During September, a sample of their work will be displayed in Corby Library during September. Also works by both artists will be installed in the stairwell at The Core, taking visitors on a journey through time, space and history allowing an exploration into digital imagery and sculptural forms.
This is an exciting development for the artists who hope this will open doors rather than closing horizons.
