The evening will be structured into three parts:

Who?
An introduction to Big Shop Friday, taking a closer look at our activities to date. Since 2017 Big Shop Friday have initiated a range of activity in Milton Keynes including a magazine shop, talk series, published a newspaper, a collaborative exhibition, a sell-out print sale, supper clubs and an artist residency.

What?
An open discussion about what an artist-led space could look like in Milton Keynes. What is an artist-led space? What is it for? What can we do? What should we do? What is stopping us?

How?
A making session to produce multiple pin-badges with answers and actions to the questions raised. We encourage participants to take these away with them, wear them as a way to initiate a wider conversation about artist-led spaces in Milton Keynes.
