Local children invited to get creative as part of Milton Keynes' first ever Big Make

    MAKE is inviting all children and young people to become BIG MAKERS as part of a month-long city-wide celebration from 29 June to 29 July.

    Jill Stansfield, Chair of MAKE, said: "Try something new whether painting, music, photography, sculpture, writing a poem, or make a film on your phone. The BIG MAKE is about giving some time to be creative and then sharing your creativity with family, friends, classmates or online with other BIG MAKERS."

    Taking part is simple

    1. Make or create something new by trying a new art form; learning a new skill; or testing out a new idea.  Any theme or topic is possible and participants can make or create anything.
    2. Share your creativity with others – family, friends, classmates or online with other Big Makers.
    3. Register to turn your own Big Make into a fundraiser (optional) and receive a special e-certificate for taking part.

    The Big Make fundraiser

    As part of The Big Make, children and young people are invited to turn their creativity into cash in order to help others like them.

    All money raised will directly fund arts projects designed especially for children and young people in MK. Projects across the arts – from painting and dance to music and theatre – improve children and young people’s lives through creative, personal and educational development. MAKE is a charitable initiative led by a group of over 60 teaching and arts professionals.  MAKE nourishes and supports the creative and cultural wellbeing of children and young people across MK.
