Simple Acts with Ria Hartley
Wednesday 21 September, 6.30pm – 8.30pm
Simple Acts is a discursive platform that curates everyday activities of simple actions to encourage sharing, networking and debate amongst the creatively curious.
Set Menu is the 2nd strand of Common Ground: 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.
