Let me be honest about something, I used to think of Luton as a place to leave England from. I'd attached a sort of edge-of-the-world narrative to the area and only mildly acknowledged that people would actually live there. Having visited, explored and spoken with members of its vibrant growing arts community, who shared some of its immense diversity, richness and vitality, I realised my foolishness.
At MNR HQ, we are really excited about this event, about discovering how the MNR might help further unlock what Luton holds in-store for its locals, for its artists and for those who want to re-experience a place they might only have passed through. As always, we are looking for local artists to collaborate with, building the route, the activities, finding interesting spaces and places... Could this you? Do you know someone?
