Event Programme 2016

Hungate in the archives: Histories of hopes for York’s housing

York Explore Library Learning Centre - York, YO1 7DS

3.30pm to 5pm

York Past and Present have been using the city’s archives to explore the histories of housing Hungate and drawing out the political reasoning for clearing the area. What can we tell by looking back at the hopes people had then for housing in York? Can any of the ideas then inspire or provoke alternative visions for housing today? We invite all who join us for the archive workshop to take part in the larger public event which will follow on ‘Beyond York’s Housing Crisis: Innovative ideas?’


Part of the MyFutureYork project. The MyFutureYork project is developing richer understandings of the city’s history to help inspire new alternative visions and ideas for York’s future.
