This Must Be the Place: Milton Keynes Cultural Education Partnership
Date Created: 28th Aug 2018
The Milton Keynes Cultural Education Partnership – a collective of over 30 organisations and council departments – works across culture, education and youth to nurture the creativity and cultural wellbeing of children and young people in Milton Keynes. In November 2017, a 7-month action research project was launched to engage with ten primary schools and five cultural organisations in the region.
‘Place Making: What Does it Mean for Children and Young People?’ saw cultural organisations partnering with two schools each, to explore various art forms, including dance, craft, and visual arts. We dug a little deeper to find out more about the project’s learning points and successes.
