We Make Things Happen is a Northampton based Knowledge Transfer Community Impact Initiative focused on showcasing all aspects of Creative Industries activities including current independent/academic research in these areas while providing training, support, legal advice and work based learning opportunities to students, artists, musicians, performers and freelance professionals.



September 14th sees the very first Midlands Voice Conference, which has been established with the purpose of building the vocal community within the Midlands.

Gemma Boaden, the conference founder, is passionate about the study of voice and helping to spread the word of all the fantastic research that is currently going on in this field. Voice research is still really only in its infancy as there is so much to discover – it is an exciting time to be a vocal practitioner. For more details:

Earlier: This summer we are seeking participants for a Music Production programme based in Wellingborough which aims to offer guidance, training and production facilities to young people from the Wellingborough area leading to a music release on the WMTH digital label.  Participants do not need to have previous experience but be willing to engage in the programme which may also include some exchange visits to similar projects in the UK/Ireland. If you are interested or know of someone who may be interested please contact us ASAP deadline May 25th 2018!

Earlier: We launched our new ‘Changemaker’ Digital Label this month where we put the artist at the center of our activities and they also get all the income from the work they produce. We can do this as we ask students to undertake planning, recording, mastering and promotion as part of their studies, giving them ‘Creative Industries’ experience while assisting local artists and musicians.

We have successfully released three EP’s April 2018 available online from all major outlets -1st May with more artist releases on WMTH due May-Sept 2018. We have also teamed up with local gig/event organiser Phil Moore, DJ/producer ‘Hussla D’ with access to production and recording facilities by Nathan Jacobs in Northampton.
We are currently working on a UK/Ireland tour for Beth Munroe and plan to continue these touring activities across Europe for our label artists through 2019. If you are a Creative Industries business, DJ/Producer or Musician interested in working with us send information via the contact form on our website:
