Milton Keynes Arts Centre is delighted to support Archive-opia, through the loan of one of the houses created by communities in Netherfield and Beanhill as part of our HOME project with Maddi Nicholson.
Commissioned by Milton Keynes City Council, Archive-opia offers free taster activities inspired by the archive collections of Buckinghamshire County Archive, MK City Discovery Centre and The Living Archive MK. Led by Architect and Archivist in Residence Alison Davies, in collaboration with Milton Keynes based creative agency Pooleyville, Archive-opia will share both known and little known aspects of MK’s local heritage whilst opening up a conversation around how Milton Keynes continues to develop its archive collections and how we capture the important community stories of a growing city.
From November – December 2022, fifteen houses created as part of HOME will be sited across Milton Keyes to collect people’s suggestions for art and environmental projects to happen in Beanhill and Netherfield. Have your say by visiting Archive-opia and posting your suggestion into the house.
If you would be interested in supporting our HOME project by taking one of the money/collection boxes, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
