Celebrated in art: The GLOBAL FOOTPRINT project
GLOBAL FOOTPRINT was a County Council led initiative that aimed for the first time to deliver a countywide project that celebrated Northamptonshire’s defining creative economy, its historic boot and shoe industry.
As part of the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad and regional Igniting Ambition Festival, GLOBAL FOOTPRINT delivered an innovative and ambitious countywide programme of contemporary ‘living heritage’ events and exhibitions, using visual and digital arts to showcase and celebrate this proud and thriving industry.
