Milton Keynes Islamic Arts and Culture is a national award-winning charity working in Buckinghamshire. We are inspired by Islamic arts, heritage and culture that encompasses both traditional and contemporary art forms. MKIAC covers a broad spectrum of inclusive arts-based events throughout the year. We are at the forefront of inclusion and diversity for the creative sector in Milton Keynes.
The establishment of MKIAC was prompted by the 9/11 incident in 2002, and we focus on using the arts as a vehicle to overcome societal divisions and provide a sense of community in our city.
Inter Faith Week starts on Rememberance Sunday. It is chosen as a way of encouraging, remembering the contributions of all faiths and none, towards the ideal of creating a peacefull world. All are welcome to attend an evening of spoken word, poetry, music, culture and reflective conversations hosted by MKIAC and INTERFAITH MK. It is an opportunity to learn about the work faith, Inter faith and faith-based groups in Milton Keynes do to help diverse communities in Milton Keynes and wider society. It is a way to foster good community bonds which embrace difference and provide a forum to increase understanding between religious and non-religious groups.
MKIAC delivers a diverse range of arts projects to promote shared learning, community cohesion and cultural understanding.
MKIAC is a not for profit organisation. We'd like to thank our supporters who enable us to produce high quality of arts delivery in Milton Keynes and the surrounding areas.
