Call for Entries: Arts for Health MK - Online Gallery

24th April 2020


Our mission at Arts for Health Milton Keynes is to use arts and creativity to improve health and well-being. We think that now more than ever it is important to use our creativity to bring people together across our community. Therefore, we are inviting artists living and working in Milton Keynes and the surrounding areas, to submit artworks for our online exhibition.

As we navigate through this time of enforced uncertainty and change, the exhibition will highlight the artwork being made within this period. It could be artworks created in isolation, documenting the resurgence of finding of joy in simple things or exploring the comforts or discomforts of repetition or disrupted routines. We are particularly interested in artworks that highlight the challenges faced by those living with physical or mental health challenges continuously in day to day life but have more public resonance now.

We welcome artworks of any medium including but not limited to painting, drawing, video or sculpture, artworks must be suitable for a portfolio style web gallery – however please note we cannot accommodate real time live performances. The online exhibition will form a lasting exhibition archive, on our website.

We will be showing as many as we can over the coming weeks, updating our online exhibition regularly to create a dialogue on social media. Maximum 3 artworks per artist.

Deadline for submissions:
Midnight Tuesday 30th June 2020
