A day of family activities located in the heart of the city – it’s not just concrete cows and roundabouts: Milton Keynes has a rich cultural history waiting to be rediscovered
In the city’s 50th anniversary year, Off the Grid: Lost and Found in Milton Keynes brings together leading FASS researchers to uncover and share it’s cultural life, including a literary treasure hunt, writing workshop, film, photograps, theatre, music, literary walking tours and public talks.
This is part of the Being Human Festival, the UK’s only national festival for the humanities which seeks to promotes the humanities as accessible and relevant to people’s everyday lives. The Open University is one of 89 universities and research organisations, planning to stage more than 300 events, in 54 cities and towns across the country. The Off the Grid team, led by Dr. Shafquat Towheed, have created a captivating programme to share FASS research with diverse audiences in ways that are accessible, engaging and fun.
