MK Skate Exhibition Assistant, Milton Keynes Council


About the project


Milton Keynes has played a seminal role in the development of UK skateboarding culture. During the late 1980s and early '90s it was the skateboarding capital of the UK and is still the lead city for street skating, in 2004 it developed and opened Europe’s first skate plaza, The Buszy. At the centre of the project is a five-week exhibition in Centre:MK. The exhibition will narrate the chronology of the development of skateboarding in MK from the late 1970s through to the present; highlighting key moments, ground-breaking skateboarders, and the creative culture associated with skateboarding in the city. The project is funded by National Lottery Heritage Fund and Milton Keynes Council and is supported by Centre:MK, Living Archive Milton Keynes, and the Centre for Buckinghamshire Studies.
