Milton Keynes Islamic Arts and Culture is an award-winning national charity working in Buckinghamshire and South East. 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 and creativity as a vehicle to overcome societal divisions and provide a sense of community in our city.
MKIAC is a diverse grassroots that right from its infancy, has been a bench-setter for embracing diversity and inclusion. As well as events, the organisation has a strong educational outreach programme.
Milton Keynes has always been a diverse place, with a rich history and prominent institutions. MKIAC has been developing and advocating for cultural diversity and diverse artist development in Milton Keynes and the surrounding region.
We work with a wide range of partners to deliver our programmes. Current partners include MK College, Bletchley Park, Five trust schools, Milton Keynes Council, AH-A, Open University, Milton Keynes Music Hub and MK Museum.
