York Castle Museum: Movement and Meaning – Tue 25 Sep 2018

Costumed Guides on Kirkgate, York Castle Museum

Date: Tuesday 25 September 2018, 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Venue: York St Mary's

Join staff from York Castle Museum and the My Castle Gateway team for a creative session that will contribute to York Castle Museum’s architectural brief for redevelopment.

Starting at St Mary’s church, the workshop will begin with a walk around the Castle Museum site followed by a cuppa tea and an ideas realisation session back at St Mary’s. There will be an architect sitting in during the workshop who can help by putting ideas into pictures, and facilitators will help by putting ideas into words. We are particularly interested in the following topics:

Movement – how do people move around the site, both into and out of the museum and all the surrounding amenities and attractions?

Sense of Place – what IS and Was this place, what makes is special at what point in history and to who? And…

Modes of Engagement – text, pictures, talks or objects, what is the best way of engaging all our visitors in the stories we tell?
