Milton Keynes, where creative experiences and opportunities transform lives

Milton Keynes has a reputation for embracing innovation, creativity, experimentation and risk-taking. Alongside the creation of a unique urban environment, the cultivation of a rich and varied cultural life was always at the very heart of Milton Keynes’ founding utopian ethos and remains at the heart of our future plans.

Milton Keynes always has and will continue to be a growing, forward-thinking city.  We will build on the Milton Keynes tradition of a bold pioneering spirit going forward, with our vision to become an internationally renowned creative and cultured city.

As a city, Milton Keynes already enjoys a rich wealth of arts and heritage organisations including the critically acclaimed MK Gallery; award-winning music venue The Stables; the renowned IF: Milton Keynes International Festival; exemplary Milton Keynes Arts Centre; globally recognised Bletchley Park and inspirational Milton Keynes Museum to name but a few.

In Autumn 2019, Milton Keynes will experience the first ever ‘A Festival of Creative Urban Living’, curated by raumlaborberlin which will bring together residents, artists, architects, creatives, urban planners, thinkers, writers, academics, students and many others to explore the future of the city through a free programme of exhibitions, workshops, performances and much more for more information see
