We will enhance our studio complex for artists and makers in Milton Keynes so that we can welcome the public to a large new space for exhibitions, events, workshops and performances, and meet our residents.
There will be a new disability accessible entrance and exit and we are installing a disabled toilet so that we can welcome back those creatives that were unable to join us on the move to Burners Lane due to the reduced disability facilities.
We currently provide studios to over 60 artists and makers in Milton Keynes but have been unable to fulfill our promise to them of a community space from which they can deliver workshops, exhibit their work, and develop collaborations. There were restrictions on the building which have now been lifted to enable us to provide these services to help MK's creative industries grow.
Our studios are used by those that can no longer work from home, are setting up for the first time as makers (due to a planned or unplanned changed in career), or those looking to scale up their creative business.
We are being supported by Arts Council England and MK Community Foundation for much, but not all, of the cost of the specialist services and building materials needed. We also have a great team of volunteers doing most of the construction work. We need a little more help to get it over the line. Please help us out with a small donation.
