Community Artist Commissions

AHA-MK secured a large strategic grant from the MK Community Foundation to work as a bridge organisation between communities and the arts and heritage sector. Part of this grant will be used to work with 6 community groups of various identities to form a question/issue to celebrate and explore creatively with a professional artist. Recognising intersectionality, groups will cover: race and faith; sexual orientation; disability; socio-economic status.

This project is one part of a strategy that uses collective action to build a more inclusive sector. It is a component of a continuous journey of inclusion, that will help to develop skills, build sustainable networks & infrastructures, & create new opportunities for partnership working.

The communities we will work with are:

Abrahamic Women – Milton Keynes; Conniburrow Big Local; Camphill Community; African Diaspora Foundation; MK Hindu Association; Middle Eastern Cultural Group.

We are currently looking for artists to work with each of these groups. Please find the artist job descriptions below (added as they are completed):
