Summer Showcase: MK Calling returns to MK Gallery

To celebrate 25 years at the heart of Milton Keynes’ art and culture scene, MK Gallery is working in partnership with five local community groups to co-curate this year’s open call summer exhibition.

This year’s MK Calling (22 June to 29 September 2024) features artworks spanning sculpture, painting, photography, installation and film.

Over 120 established and emerging artists explore themes including identity, inclusivity, possible futures, heritage, and significant moments across five thematic gallery spaces.

Over the past year, MK Gallery has been collaborating with: learners from MK SNAP, a Milton Keynes-based training provider for learning-disabled adults; The Visually Impaired People (VIP) Group, a group of friends living with sight loss in the local area who have met through different local support organisations; Unknown Collective, a group of under 26-year-old creatives who have previously engaged with MK Gallery’s programme; Members of the Middle Eastern Cultural Group, a platform which provides social activities and language tuition to people from Middle Eastern communities living in Milton Keynes; and adults from Q:Alliance, a registered charity that provides support, information, and empowerment for the LGBTQ+ community in Milton Keynes and surrounding areas.

MK Calling 2024 is generously supported by David Lock Associates, Milton Keynes Community Foundation and Paul Hamlyn Foundation.
