Inter-Action MK – Arts for Everyone
Community arts charity Inter-Action MK has been bringing arts to life in Milton Keynes for 40 years. We use the arts 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 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. We have begun to take Groovy Gecko On The Road to bring the magic to annual events. We are planning Groovy Gecko Cabaret Nights in the year ahead.
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 high quality projects with partners new and established. This year we have launched Fringe Forward working with MK Festival Fringe where we have 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 40 years ago when Inter-Action and Milton Keynes were Spring Chickens! Zerena has been chosen as one of the MK 50th Birthday celebration projects by Milton Keynes Council for 2017.
