Supporting arts practitioners and promoting artistic collaboration across Milton Keynes.
Arts Gateway provides a home for aspiring artists (see our project) as part of a larger remit to help grow the artistic community within Milton Keynes. We provide a resource centre (CARC), as well as a home where artists from many different fields are able to collaborate and cross-fertilise ideas. In the past we have also provided grants but that won't be possible until our project is finished.Why the community needs us
The Arts needs energetic champions with strong voices. We can provide a platform for grass-roots arts to make their voices heard, within Milton Keynes. By creating an arts hub within an area that already has a few artists we are growing the artistic community and establishing a place where it can flourish. With strong links to the local councils we are also providing that voice to promote the artistic point of view.Our impact on the community
AGMK has housed hundreds of artists over the last 7 years in 6 temporary sites. With our new project we plan to create a much more stable home for over 100 artists. We have also provided resources in the form of costume, lighting, staging and sound equipment for many local productions. We have grant-aided over 100 artists and look forward to being able to do that again one our project is complete.
We have a large and ongoing building project to create an arts hub on Kiln Farm which needs people to do everything from building walls to sweeping floors. We also need helpers to help run the Community Arts Resource Centre.
