MK DAD (Disability Awareness Day) is now entering its 4th year and brings together a range of communities from across Milton Keynes for one special day as we celebrate the ABILITY in the word disability.
Re-imagining the way that society views disability we want to create a platform where we can address disability issues within a chosen theme. For 2018 MK DAD has decided to focus on the theme of movement and sport. We will be inviting athletes, dancers and artists to join us in this conversation to see how we can create equal opportunities which are accessible and fully inclusive for all. The day itself will involve sports demonstrations from organisations across the city, the opportunity to meet GB Paralympians and hear their stories as well as some street dance, yoga and music from many talented performers. There will also be an art exhibition showcasing work from disabled artists from Milton Keynes and surrounding areas entitled You See Me, Moving forward The exhibition runs from June 23rd to July 15th and will be located in centre:mk close to door 15 and adjacent to John Lewis.
