Next York Central event: 5th July, 3-8pm. Drop in anytime but sign up to say you’re coming. Friargate Meeting House.
During the Festival of York Central many people identified the opportunity which the development presents for creating a hub which catalyses York’s creativity and innovation. In digital media, science, technology and railway engineering, heritage and culture, York is already home to a unique range of initiatives and businesses.
- How can we build a new part of the city which consciously fosters this and enables new connections and partnerships across the boundaries of art, culture, digital technology and engineering?
- With an uncertain future for conventional employment, how can York’s resources of knowledge and experience best be used to enable rich, fulfilling lives for people who live here?
- Can we create a culture of exchange which transforms learning and training and more broadly shapes York Central?
My York Central is working in partnership with City of York Council and others to look at how we can make this happen.
- What buildings, facilities, networks and partnerships would be needed to enable this innovative approach to learning and skills?
- Would this be a building, a local network, or both?
- Who would need to be involved and how?
We are running an event to capture ideas, develop outline proposals and discuss them, and to shape a brief for one of York Central’s most exciting potential projects. If you can only spare limited time, then please drop in for a while; if you can stay longer then be part of developing and moving forward the ideas.
Refreshments will be provided!
