Community Arts Resource Centre – CARCMK

The Community Arts Resource Centre has built up its inventory of costumes and technical and event equipment over a long period, from gifts, acquisitions and grants from MKCF. The equipment is stored at Burners Lane, and its use can be arranged through the Arts Gateway office.
