The artists devise, fundraise, manage and deliver projects themselves.

In 2011 they created a series of Wellbeing Walks Maps with young people recovering from mental distress in Corby and in 2012 began their project Light Walks For Dark Days with the same group. They work professionally as artists and have extensive experience in socially engaged artistic practice.Our impact on the community
