We specialise in co-developing projects involving artists and often marginalised or disadvantaged communities across Milton Keynes.

Sorry! We're not currently looking for anyone to join the team.

Milton Keynes Arts Centre is proud to be a Real Living Wage employer.

In 2022–23, MKAC spent £90,430 on programme, of which 71% was on artists’ fees. We pay a minimum of £30 per hour to artists delivering workshops (including planning time) and for experienced project artists £250–£300 per day.

Our socially engaged ethos means our work is increasingly focused on supporting social cohesion, wellbeing, and skills development, collaborating with artists and cross-sector organisations to address local and global issues through creativity. Dedicated to inclusivity, the Arts Centre has provided multiple entry points for diverse communities to engage with the arts, offering life-enhancing skills through collaboration with professional artists; as a result, we have become one of the largest employers of artists in Milton Keynes.
