Arts for Health features selected artworks made between March and July 2020 by artists living in Milton Keynes and its surrounding area. Through a range of media - including painting, drawing, photography, and film - the exhibition aims to create dialogue and awareness around those living and working in social isolation.
Arts for Health also includes work created for Milton Keynes Disability Awareness Day 2020, an annual event which highlights the talents of people with disabilities.
Artworks which explore the daily experiences faced by many who live with disability now seem to have more public resonance as a result of the current COVID-19 pandemic; from the discovery of joy in simple things to the comforts and discomforts of repetition or disrupted routines. Within this context, Arts for Health invites a reimagining of the way society views physical disability and mental health.
* Visits to the Arts for Health exhibition in the Project Space are FREE and do not need to be pre-booked. If you wish to visit the MK Calling exhibition in the main gallery at the same time, you must pre-book your visit.
︎ Many of the artworks are for sale; 25% of all sales goes directly to Arts for Health Milton Keynes and will help to fund our future programmes.
