                      Arts Gateway MK is a not-for-profit social enterprise, registered at the Charity Commission (No. 1126872) and constantly looking for new ways to support and promote arts and the creative sector in and around Milton Keynes.

                      We receive no external funding for our survival, but have been able to get some  projects funded by the Arts Council, MK Community Foundation , MK Council and others.  We cover our operating costs through what we charge artists for their use of our spaces, and aim to keep these costs very low.  Why not help creative development in MK by making a donation?  If you donate through Gift Aid your money is increased by the Government.
