In the winter of 2017–18, Arts for Health Milton Keynes welcomed artists Emily Hawes, James Roseveare and Jamie Harper to explore with residents and friends the quintessential Milton Keynes vision of Peartree Bridge, a tree-lined neighbourhood which encapsulates all that is MK.

Bordering the Grand Union Canal and Ouzel Valley Park to the East, and with the V8 Marlborough Street to the West, Peartree Bridge is lent a feeling that two opportunities await anytime one steps outdoors: a countryside of fields and open spaces at on one side; with the city, underpasses and triceratops sculptures on the other.

After formative research phases for all artists in residence, with visits made to the Milton Keynes City Discovery Centres archive in the winter, followed by workshops with residents in the spring making ceramic objects; taking walks to collect wild flowers; evenings spent designing possible futures; and charting the histories of the neighbourhoods tree life, Peartree Bridge Projects presents a variety of new artworks.

Peartree Bridge Arts Projects residents and artists have produced many new artworks, from a sculpture trail for walking starting beside the Grand Union Canal.
