Movement and Meaning – Wed 3 Oct 2018

Date: Wednesday 3 October 2018, 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Venue: York St Mary's

In this workshop– a collaboration between My Castle Gateway and York Castle Museum – we explore how everyday movement (on foot, on bike, in a wheelchair, with a push chair, in a bus or car) and the rich significance of the local area can be combined.

The workshop will combine a walk through the site, exploring the key issues of movement and connection and key aspects of the history and heritage of the site. We will look at the current buildings, spaces and connections as well as consider the importance of those now gone. Throughout we will be asking: How can movement and meaning be combined in the architecture and public spaces around York Castle Museum?

The workshop – along with a series of other events – will inform an open community brief for the architects working on the development of the York Castle Museum.
