Donate your unwanted military toys

21.4.2015

Military Toy Amnesty!

Deadline for donations: Thursday 7 May 2015

 

Students from Oakgrove School want your military toys and plastic guns. Bring your unwanted military toys, games and toy guns to MK Gallery and drop them at the Gallery’s Information Desk up until Thursday 7 May. The students will be using donated toys to create a brand new piece of artwork exploring conflict and the visual arts. The piece, Would You Buy War in a Store?, will go on display at MK Gallery's Project Space in June 2015.


To mark the WW1 Centenary, MK Gallery has been working with Key Stage 3 pupils from four local secondary schools as part of a project entitled Frontline, engaging students with artist-led research trips, workshops and talks. The project explores how artists have used the visual arts to depict and interpret military conflict and culminates in a month-long exhibition of original work at MK Gallery's Project Space from 5 - 28 June 2015.

 

Frontline is part of the Great War MK, a project led by Arts and Heritage Alliance MK.
