Do Good Because of Tomorrow is an exhibition of new work by London based artist and designer Yinka Ilori in collaboration with fifteen children from Giffard Park Primary, Great Linford Primary and St Monica’s Catholic Primary schools, as the first stage of Common Ground.
Set Menu is a creative response to the unique offer of Milton Keynes’s grid road systems and pockets of estates spread across its diverse City. Each workshop explored personal taste and engaged communities in a discovery of self-expression through their choice of colour, size, texture and unique style. Workshops were led by artists Ibiye Camp, Shepherd Manyika, Kay Davis, Safia El Dabi and Alex Brenchley, as the second stage of Common Ground.
Artist Tom Dale invites lace-makers from in and around Buckinghamshire to take part in the rich history of their heritage craft, exploring the relationships between lace, craft, conversation and early forms of artificial intelligence in his forthcoming project at Milton Keynes Arts Centre.
If you have lace you would like to donate to this project, please do get in touch on 01908 608108
Common Ground expands upon Milton Keynes Arts Centre’s community participation and artist development programmes, offering a twelve month season of five distinct projects, each presenting high quality and meaningful opportunities for engagement between a diverse spectrum of artists and communities living in Milton Keynes. Working with artists Yinka Ilori, Ibiye Camp, Tom Dale, Izzy Parker and Groundwork (Ashleigh Griffith and Cara Davies), our projects will see artists work directly with our communities to create new works and establish a connected programme of workshops, professional and artistic development, salons and supper clubs targeting artists and practitioners based in Milton Keynes.
