Why the community needs us

Your donation enables Milton Keynes Arts Centre to continue our valuable work with local communities, in 2015 proceeds from our Local Giving supporters meant we were able to continue working with ‘Open Door MK’, a homelessness charity, and deliver free workshops and events for children, young people and adults.

Our impact on the community
One service user at Open Door MK said of our recent Heritage Craft Project: “Having access to materials I would not usually get to use, and to work alongside others in my community learning a new skill, has been really enjoyable, and I would like to do it all over again”.

What your gift could provide
Arts materials to facilitate workshops for vulnerable people 
Engage at risk local families in a 2 hour art and wellbeing workshop 
Offer family workshops targeting disadvantaged communities
