Flags inspired by mandalas in Milton Keynes
On this page
MK Mandalas was a collaborative project between Kinetika and IF: Milton Keynes International Festival. Local artists and communities in Milton Keynes worked together to design and create 30 stunning mandala silk flags.
Using the The Milton Keynes Rose as inspiration, Kinetika and local artists held sessions on how to design a mandala, drawing and sketching, composition, and construction.
Community groups then created 30 designs that were turned into the final batik silks. The flags are being displayed as part of IF: MK International Festival this summer.
Thank you to the artists and participant groups who took part:

Participating Groups: Broughton & Brooklands Community Connectors, Camphill Communities, The Frank Moran Centre, Friends & Families MK, Grand Mentors from Volunteering Matters, The Milton Keynes Hindu Association, MK ACT, MK Collective: Artists & Makers, Sew & Grow and Childcare Pathways, and YMCA Milton Keynes.
