On the Verge: The Underpasses project


On the Verge and its partners MK Council, The Parks Trust MK and the MK City Discovery Centre, are delivering the yearlong ‘Underpasses’ project with funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF), the MK Community Foundation, and MK Council.

The ‘Underpasses’ project aims to connect residents with the unique heritage of the ‘New Town’ of Milton Keynes, tying into MK50 anniversary celebrations in 2017.

This is to be done through:

  • A programme of community engagement events and school sessions
  • Commissioning of heritage inspired artwork and interpretation panels to revive improve and enhance three underpasses (and Seklow Mound)
  • Production of two publications for children on MK’s ‘New Town’ history, an exhibition, heritage trail and an App

On the Verge are looking to commission two socially engaged artists or artist collaborations to deliver two public art commissions within two underpasses in Milton Keynes.
