Join Set Menu artist Ibiye Camp for a Movie and Mandazi Night at Milton Keynes Arts Centre

Movie: BABYLON (Franco Rosso; 1980; Certificate 15)

A dramatic story set in South London, New Cross at the beginning of the Thatcher era, involving two competing reggae sound systems, racism, fanaticism, unemployment and false accusations.

Mandazi: Homemade fresh and hot out of the fryer with cinnamon and cardom spices. Perfectly company with a cup of hot Milo for the ideal Thursday treat night.


Still Life Drawing

15 September, 6:30pm – 8:30pm

Free event for all the family

Join Nigerian Artist Sokari Douglas Camp for an evening of Still Life Drawing and food from East Street Market, freshly prepared at Milton Keynes Arts Centre.

East Street Market is one of London's oldest, largest and busiest markets and is as fondly visited now by local people as it has been for decades.
Simple Acts
with Ria Hartley


21 September 2016, 6.30–8.30pm

Working in response to Ibiye Camp’s exhibition Set Menu, Ria Hartley invited guests to a macrobiotic meal to contemplate how small acts of generosity invigorate processes of self-enquiry and self-expression. The informal but intimate evening punctuated a series of actions to encourage an exchange that draws attention to care and kindness one may give to oneself, and towards others, when making artworks.
Simple Acts curated by Groundwork artists Ashleigh Griffith and Cara Davies, with host Artists Barby Asante, Ria Hartley, Hayley Newman and Sibylle Peters.

Simple Acts was a discursive platform curating everyday activities of simple actions to encourage sharing, networking and debate amongst the creatively curious. Developed by arts collective Tracing The Pathway for their Milton Keynes based performance and research project Groundwork, in partnership with Milton Keynes Arts Centre.
