Groundwork Weekender, Festival & Symposium
Hosted by Tracing The Pathway
Various Locations across Milton Keynes

The Groundwork Weekender is a three-day celebration and exploration of Milton Keynes; its heritage, landscape, mobility, architecture, people, sites and sounds of the city, curated by artist-collective Tracing the Pathway.

Presenting an ambitious and diverse programme of performances, talks, walks, exhibitions, film screenings and social meeting points, each entirely created for and in response to MK. Eleven unique artist projects will premiere, softly animate the city, gesturing towards the inspiring creative and cultural sites that can be found by every grassy verge; in its grid formations, underpasses, trees, and people too.

All events are free and the programme encourages both arts and non-arts audiences to engage with the work and meet the artists behind their creation. Audiences will be free to navigate their way around the programme and city, or, alternatively we invite you to join us for a three-day guided tour as we collectively journey by foot, by bike and by bus around these artworks, around this city.

The Weekender is part of Groundwork, developed by artist collective Tracing the Pathway. Groundwork is a performance and research project about Milton Keynes, which curates unique artworks for the town, supports the development of artists, and provides a platform artists to make deep, long-lasting connection the city. This programme, in parallel to the Weekender, has been generously supported with funding from Arts Council England, Milton Keynes Community Foundation, Pedalling Culture, Milton Keynes Arts Centre and Sharing Culture: MK.
