Objectives

We are a registered charity and company, limited by guarantee, set up to nurture and promote the creative arts in Milton Keynes and area. Our mission is to create a creatively dynamic city that embraces artists and is seen by the public as a place for artistic play. Our main income comes from our studio workspaces.

We currently have over 85 places, plus a small flexible presentation/performance space, in our premises in Burners Lane, Kiln Farm. We lease these premises from the Community Foundation at a subsidised rate, reflecting our charitable status. We aim to supplement this income with donations from public sources, charitable trusts, local corporates and individuals. We have been fortunate to obtain external grants from Arts Council England, the Community Foundation, Milton Keynes Council and the Garfield Weston Foundation.

We have recently completed the construction of the presentation space in our premises, designed to be used for creative events, workshops, exhibitions and performance.  We are very excited about the opportunities this gives for expanding our creative programmes. 

GMK operates as a company limited by guarantee with charitable status, incorporated in May 2008 and registered with the Charity Commission at the same time.
