MK Gallery is host venue for Collaborative Acts, an event designed to bring artists and curators together from across the East and South East regions of England, to hear more about opportunities to work together with others, and how groups of artists are doing this already - either as informal networks or as collectives.


Spend the afternoon in an informative and informal environment, meeting other artists, hearing about diverse ways of working and seeing the outcomes of collaborative practice. Speakers include:


Gareth Bell-Jones, Artists and Programmes Curator at Wysing Arts Centre, introducing the Escalator Visual Arts Programme with Escalator artist Florian Roithmayr

Emma-Jayne Taylor, Director at Artworks MK and the Carousel art collective.

Event attendees will be provided with dinner (5.30pm until 6.30pm, with a pay-bar) and invited to stay for a special MK Gallery Scratch Night from 6.30pm, programmed by artists from the most recent retreat at Wysing Arts Centre.


Collaborative Acts is part of a programme of events hosted by Contemporary Visual Arts Network East and South East to generate collaboration across the wide range of artists groups, networks and projects active in their regions.


Scratch Night 6-8pm

Introduced by artists Jamie George and Fiona James

Artists Jamie George and Fiona James, who each participated in the most recent retreat Space of Attention at Wysing arts centre will introduce an evening of overlapping and interrelated video and sound with contributions from their fellow retreat participants Jenny Chamarette, Annie Davey, Natasha Hoare, Sidsel Meineche Hansen, Stephanie Misa, David Morris, Rosalie Schweiker and Khadija von Zinnenburg Carroll. 

CVAN - Contemporary Visual Arts Network (formerly Turning Point Network) is a consortium of eleven co-ordinated regional groups of contemporary visual arts professionals across nine English regions.
