Xscape Milton Keynes is playing host to a unique art exhibition – but you'll need to hurry if you want to see it!
Xscape’s chosen charity Mencap, the leading UK charity for people with a learning disability, and Milton Keynes based charity MK Snap who offer professional support to more than 100 people with learning difficulties, have worked together to create the Snap Attack gallery which will be on display at Xscape today and tomorrow (October 3 & 4).
Snap Attack was opened by Milton Keynes Mayor Councillor Keith McLean at a red carpet reception, hosted by MK Snap learners who were on hand to discuss the artwork on display and share their story of how each piece had come to be.
MK Snap learners have created an array of artwork using a variety of materials inspired by the work of some of their favourite artists, including Banksy and Jackson Pollock.
The project seeks to highlight how it helps learners to work as a team whilst aiding their individual development, and raise awareness of what a learning disability is.
“We’re delighted to have the opportunity to showcase our learners’ artwork at Xscape Milton Keynes,” said Steven Carruthers from MK Snap, “The project was devised solely by our learners, so it’s fantastic to have them here with us today to see their art complete its journey from the drawing board to being on display in front of the public.”
