Paper Planes

A temporary artwork in Coronation Park by Vishal Joshi

The Paper Planes project is a chance to explore the thoughts, feelings, people, and places that make us hopeful.

Made With Many is asking residents of Corby to share messages of hope through decorated Paper Planes in windows. The project aims to create colourful and bright journeys through different areas of Corby, where passers-by can be inspired and cheered up by your words of solidarity and optimism.

As part of the project, artist Vishal Joshi will create a large temporary Paper Plane sculpture as a reminder of our ability to lift up and move forward. Alongside the giant 3-meter Paper Plane sculpture. the artist will place 50 smaller paper planes, each handwritten with a message spotted in a Corby window.
