Inter-Action MK – Arts for Everyone
Community arts charity Inter-Action MK has been bringing arts to life in Milton Keynes for over 40 years. We use the arts to bring joy and purpose to all communities and especially to improve the life chances of people with support needs or disabilities or in challenging or vulnerable circumstances. Our innovative programme of inclusive arts successfully brings people of all backgrounds together in shared creative activity. Our programme helps participants to develop creative, personal and social skills.
Our current activities include Get In! a course which builds employment skills set in a music venue and recording studio and the now legendary Groovy Gecko Club Night, a night club for adults with learning difficulties and/or disabilities, based at The Slug & Lettuce in Milton Keynes on the first Tuesday of every month with a Spin Off club Illuminate every 3 months in Wolverton and a training programme so that the club is more and more owned and run by its users.
Inter-Action MK is building a programme of mentoring and training emerging artists, creative producers interested in socially engaged practice and in helping adults who face challenge gain work and experience in the cultural sector.
We are entering a period of change and growth, focusing on longer term project strands and on high quality programmes with partners new and established. Recently we ran Fringe Forward working with MK Festival Fringe where we mentored three young creative Producers to manage dozens of events throughout the Festival. We are proud to be working on The Zerena Project a documentary film about a wonderful project we created over 40 years ago when Inter-Action and Milton Keynes were Spring Chickens!
