MK DAD 2017
MK DAD 2017
On July 14th we came together with other disability services at The Rose in Campbell Park Milton Keynes to celebrate Disability Awareness Day 2017
Accessibility and support for people with physical, mental and learning disabilities was the message at this year’s Milton Keynes Disability Awareness Day event. Speakers included Paralympian skier, Anna Turney and The High Sheriff of Buckinghamshire, Peter Kara. Guests tied awareness-raising blue and yellow pompoms on the MK DAD pillar at The Rose in Campbell Park, before visiting the art exhibition at the centre:mk which showcased the talent of disabled artists. The show also challenges perceptions and reduces the stigma surrounding both physical disability, learning disabilities and mental health. Curated by Arts for Health Milton Keynes in partnership with MKDAD, the centre:mk and funded by MK Community Foundation, ‘Now you See Me’ showcases 50 works – to coincide with the MK50 celebrations.
There were also a performance of the Disability Awareness Day Anthem ‘Now See Me’ by Macintyre and a dance/fitness show by Camphill Communities
The audience then walked back to the Now You See Me Art Exhibition within Centre MK to see thew wonderful art work on display
Thank you to everyone who attended and we now look forward to next years celebrations
Please keep the date July 14th in your diaries
