The African & Caribbean Arts & Heritage Union presents...
MK CARNIVAL 2022
A weekend to celebrate our arts and rich heritage
Our aims echo the agenda of the local councils (Arts and Heritage Alliance of Milton Keynes), to create inclusion, celebrate diversity and showcase equality regardless of race, gender or sexual orientation. We would like to showcase the harmony, togetherness and beauty of diversity through holding a carnival that will give all members of the community, more especially young people the opportunity to celebrate our diversity.
