A Festival of Creative Urban Living

From 26 September – 13 October 2019, Central Milton Keynes hosted the first ever ‘A Festival of Creative Urban Living’; bringing together with Lead Architects Raumlabor from Berlin artists, architects, designers, urban planners, thinkers, creatives and many others to deliver a free programme of exhibitions, events, creative workshops, performances and much more. The programme took place in a temporary campus of remarkable and playful buildings and structures. Visitors included residents, local schools and communities who enjoyed and experienced Central MK in an entirely different way and thought about what it might become and look like in the future.  

The Festival’s evaluation concluded that for a first event it had been a success, creating a new way to consult on Milton Keynes’ future. Plans are being made for a second festival in 2024.
