May 2024

The MK Rose is 10 years old this year and to celebrate the Trust is thrilled to announce we will be commissioning an artist or creative practice to help us celebrate. This is an exciting opportunity to creatively record the history of the MK Rose, designed by internationally renowned artist Gordon Young. The Commission will reflect the ten year journey of the MK Rose from concept to the present day and create a lasting legacy. We are keen to hear from artists or creative practices with a track record of engaging communities and creatively interpreting heritage. For further details about the Commission, measurable outcomes, budget and evaluation please click here. The closing date for expressions of interest has been extended and will now close on 5pm Monday 27 May 2024.

The Milton Keynes Rose Trust will evaluate all submissions and may choose to invite shortlisted candidates for a clarification interview. As this is a commemorative year it is essential that the Commission is delivered on time, in budget and to the highest quality.

Proposals and accompanying information should be sent to Debbie Brock;
