MK Gallery wins at the Fantastic for Families 2021 Awards!

MK Gallery has been awarded Best Family Arts Activity for their Sensory Boxes offer which was instigated by the Inclusive Practice in the Arts team in February of this year, in response to the continued Covid-19 lockdowns.

The boxes were especially designed for families who have a child or children with complex needs, many of whom had previously engaged with their bespoke Art and Us in-person workshops at the Gallery.

The boxes contained a wide range of sensory-based materials which aimed to ignite play, spark curiosity and increase connection within the home environment, and were accompanied by a supporting creative video message from each artist.

The offer has been so well-received that the team has decided to embed the Sensory Boxes into their core Art and Us programme going forward, offering families a more blended approach to engaging with artists and creative activities.
