Groundwork aims to provide time and space to foster the development of a community of Milton Keynes local artists and residents (with an interest in the arts and culture), who have the opportunity to work alongside a selection of nationally renowned performance artists. It is our intention that this rich diversity of people from varying backgrounds will enable us to:
*Establish an open forum for sharing thoughts and opinions about the artistic and cultural identity of Milton Keynes;
*Generate a critical and creative platform for local artists to meet, discuss and share their practice and views on arts, culture and heritage;
*Make connections between emerging and mid-career artists within and beyond the borders of Milton Keynes;
*Provide professional opportunities for nationally recognised artists to disseminate their working methods in MK; and
*Inspire and develop a community of MK artists and residents with an artistic sensibility/sensitivity to feel they are part of a strong network of like-minded individuals.
