Thinking York from the Villages – Walks with My Future York
Sat, October 24 @ 12.00 pm – Sun, October 25 @ 5.30 pm
It is often said that York’s city centre and suburbs face different issues to York’s villages – and that those that live in town rarely understand what matters to people living out of town. Yet the biggest issues we face – whether housing and movement – can only be addressed by building mutual understanding between people who live in rural and urban York. We ask: How do the biggest issues York faces look from the perspective of six of York’s villages? How can we use these conversations to think about designing deliberative systems that facilitate and link deep and informed conversations across York?
To experiment as part of York Design Week, we will run a set of small socially-distanced walks and conversations in six of York’s villages and then invite everyone involved – together with interested urban dwellers – to meet online so we can draw out the issues and reflect on how to design deliberative systems that can link us together.
