Arc Universities

The Universities of Northampton and Bedfordshire are pooling their expertise to keep alive the heritage of Luton and Corby for ambitious culture and community projects.

The Heritage Impact Accelerator is a project supported by The National Lottery Heritage Fund that will see University of Northampton focus on enriching and showcasing the heritage of Corby. The University of Bedfordshire will extend their established Heritage Futures Elevator project in Luton, with both institutions working hand-in-hand to develop heritage across the region.

The Heritage Impact Accelerator will support practitioners in both towns and surrounding areas, to deliver heritage-related educational projects, covering community heritage, natural heritage, industrial heritage and heritage of both town’s architecture.

These projects can include educational talks and discussions and training workshops. The first cohort of Corby practitioners are expected to be announced later this year. In time, practitioners will go into schools to pass on their heritage knowledge to the next generation.
