Event description

Description

The New Town Heritage Explorers Project is an exciting design and heritage project to develop a New Town Heritage Toolkit and bring the city's design heritage to life for all residents with an innovative creative programme. The project will explore and document the social history of MK – the stories of the people who live here, the impact of the buildings on daily life, and what is it like to live in a city built from scratch.

The project will produce a New Town Heritage Toolkit to enable local communities to:

  • Use the city's archives to find out about the history of where they live

  • Assess the city's architectural and heritage character - what has worked well or not so well?

  • Identify what makes places special and how they should be looked after in the future?

  • Suggest buildings that could go into the New Town Heritage Register, and

  • Shape the city's future planning and growth.


We are hosting a workshop on the development of the Heritage Toolkit for representatives of and individuals involved in heritage and other local cultural organisations. The workshop will be led by Louise Thomas, Director of the Historic Towns and Villages Forum, and will provide a background to the Toolkit, outline its themes, and give you the opportunity to test it by undertaking a mapping and visual documenting exercise of the local area.

The workshop is your opportunity to participate in contributing to the development of the New Town Heritage Toolkit and to start to record the unique design and heritage of Milton Keynes, along with your New Town Heritage story.

The workshop is a FREE event. For further information contact Pamela Roberts, Project Manager, pamelanewtown@yahoo.com.
