Two Artists Walking

Created October 20, 2018
Once known for the industrialisation of iron and steel, Corby’s recent regeneration has seen exciting cultural developments one of which is the Rooftop Art Centre aptly situated on the rooftops of the Willow Place Shopping Centre.

The Rooftop Arts Centre is a hive of artistic endeavours by a diverse range of resident artists, volunteers, and visitors to the ongoing classes and exhibitions that take place in the varying gallery venues.  It is a place where ideas are shared; small projects thrive with the wider community at the heart of its ethos.

Director Dinah Kazakoff and former Resident Artist Agnieszka Paruszewska are two women of different ages and cultural backgrounds who are joining forces, uniting their common passion of walking and are setting off on an adventure in hope of raising money for the valued Rooftop Arts Centre.

Their goal is to walk 500 miles of the ‘Camino de Frances’ (Way of St James) - a spiritual pilgrimage that is a well-trod route by millions.  This ambitious feat of endurance will begin in the Northern part of Spain and the capital of Navarre, Pamplona and will culminate at Santiago de Compostela the capital of northwest Spain’s Galicia region also known as the alleged burial site of the Biblical apostle St. James.

Dinah and Aga have chosen November to take to the terrain; usually a quieter period with fewer hikers and November also marks a slower pace at the Arts Centre after a busy summer of events.  Their wish is to honour the self-funding charity raising awareness and monies to boost the profile, reputation, and amenities that support the community of Corby. 

You can support the Rooftop Arts Centre by donating to Dinah and Agnieszka here on their Go Fund Me page. Follow Dinah and Agnieszka here or on the Rooftop Art Centre Facebook Page  and on Instagram  and Twitter .

Thank you very much for your support and well wishes.

This walk is entirely self-funded by the artists and 100% of the donations will go to the Rooftop Arts Centre.

How it Works
  1. You are donating to PayPal Giving Fund UK, a registered charity (No. 1110538), which will email you a receipt for your donation and claim Gift Aid where eligible.
  2. GoFundMe’s platform is free. The charity will typically receive the funds from PayPal Giving Fund within 15-45 days of your donation if the charity has enrolled (or 90 days if the charity has not yet enrolled). Unlike other platforms, 100% of any Gift Aid will go to the charity as well.
* In very limited cases, a recommended charity may cease to meet PayPal Giving Fund's legal or other eligibility requirements. In such cases, PayPal Giving Fund will reassign the funds to a similar charity, and (wherever possible) seek a new recommendation from donors.
