#MKExplorers Online

Want to see your work feature in an online exhibition and be in with the chance of winning a cool prize? 

Our team have created the #MKHomeDesignCity – some fun activities for you to try below and with a bit of luck you will learn something about your local area too!

Our activities involve posting to Twitter @MKExplorers, though by using Hashtags you can post to Facebook or Instagram too.  And it involves you knowing a little bit of research about your local area.  Will you be a savvy search engine user, or will you be more active and go for a walk or even a bike ride to explore and take photos?

All our activities have a short 60-second YouTube Tutorial Video to help you plan your activity and get it online for others to discover. And we have created a New Town Research Page for you to learn more about Milton Keynes,

Every person that posts a completed activity to @MKExplorers using #MKHomeDesignCity and our individual activity Hashtags will have their work posted in our online exhibition and their name (IE social media handle) put into our Competition Prize Draw with the winners announced in September

And if that’s not enough there is a #NewTownQuiz for you to test your knowledge about MK and also a #NewTownSurvey to tell us what you like best about living here in Milton Keynes.

Good luck and Have Fun!
