On 7 March, Milton Keynes Arts Centre brings together Fionnuala Boyd, Ciara Callaghan, Alondene Phillips and Elmira Zadissa, all of whom are based or work in Milton Keynes. From early career to established artists, artists who are studio-based as well as those who work in the community, this hour-long event will hear their experiences of lockdown and what impact it has had upon their work and professional practices. 

Fionnuala Boyd is one half of the artists duo, Boyd & Evans, who have worked together since 1968; the starting point for their work is images collected from their extensive travels, particularly in the South-West USA. 

Ciara Callaghan is a fibre and natural colour artist, who has been exhibiting and selling her work since 2019; she also leads workshops and classes at MK Gallery and Milton Keynes Arts Centre. 

Alondene Phillips is a ceramic & textile artist whose practice explores notions of dual heritage and cultural belonging. Like Ciara Callaghan, she is an Artist Associate at Milton Keynes Arts Centre and has been self-employed since September 2019.

Elmira Zadissa is a queer community organiser and creative freelancer based in Cambridge; together with Ramona Zadissa, she was artist in residence at Milton Keynes Arts Centre in 2020 during the first lockdown.

This event is being organised in celebration of International Women’s Day with Community Action MK.
