Artist Commission: Jazz Moreton Spaghetti for Two
Milton Keynes Disability Awareness Day 2020
13th July 2020
For Milton Keynes Disability Awareness Day 2020 Arts for Health Milton Keynes have commissioned artist Jazz Moreton to create a performance based, digital artwork and workshop activity.
The performance sees the host of what would be a party in normal times spending the time that she would have spent cooking to knit a friendship bracelet. Instead of pasta, her cooking-pot contains string. The artist will instruct her audience on how to cast on, knit and cast off.
We invite you to join in the performance from home in your own time. The artwork will be hosted on https://mkdad.wordpress.com/Artist Commission 2020 premiering on 14th July 2020 – Milton Keynes Disability Awareness Day. The artwork will be archived on the Arts for Health MK website after the event on our exhibitions pages.
This years Milton keynes disability awareness day will also see Milton Keynes Community Choir in concert with Electric Umbrella. Tuesday 14th July 7.45-8.45pm - join our Facebook watch party! Details on www.mkdad.wordpress.com
