Milton Keynes, Milton Keynes

Curated by curious folk from two local charities, we’ve posed ourselves some questions about the nature of community, what it is and what it might look like in the future. In the UK we’re experiencing the biggest change in public services we’ve seen for decades. We all know that this is presenting some hard challenges for communities up and down the country and also manifesting some amazing ideas. We’re interested in sharing some big ideas and bringing people together to inspire them to create change in different ways.

We want to show how communities are solving problems, developing services, making use of technology and being creative. We want our audiences to come away questioning what they’d always assumed was a way to do something, their definitions of community and have ideas about doing things differently.
