This month’s exhibition in MK Gallery Project Space is presented by Milton Keynes-based arts charity MK Arts for Health. It comprises a range of two-dimensional work made since July this year by participants on their Arts on Prescription project.

Arts on Prescription is a 10 week programme of arts activities for people with mental health issues such as depression, stress and anxiety. The programme is available ‘on prescription’ from GPs, mental health workers, and voluntary sector organisations such as Rethink and MK Mind. Since May this year, nearly 100 people have been referred to the programme, and forty of the participants have work featured in the exhibition and its accompanying booklet.

The Arts on Prescription exhibition includes work on the theme of the architecture of Milton Keynes, realised in relief printing, and street scenes and roundabouts painted with acrylics. Participants have also experimented with charcoal, pastel and collagraph printing and painting using vegetables and leaves as brushes, exploring different ways of looking and making.
