York C20 website launch!

York C20 website launch

Thursday 27 October 2022, 6.30PM to 8:30pm

A deeply varied and intriguing set of post-1914 buildings are brought back to life through 30 illustrated vignettes authored by students that speak for those who built and commissioned them about how they saw themselves in the modern world.

The project benefited from an AHRC Knowledge Exchange fund, and collaborations with the York Civic Trust, the Twentieth Century Society, and guest speakers from across built environment spheres.

Everyone is welcome: please sign up for a free ticket to attend in person (limited places) or online. Refreshments will be provided, courtesy of the Department of the History of Art, University of York and by the York Civic Trust.

Attendees in person will also get a free, beautifully produced YorkC20 map!

Our guest of honour is Dr Jane Grenville. The student contributors are: Richard Burrows, Pamela Chapman, Alizée Cisternino, Ida Houdart, Tom Howard, Yanqi Huang, Ania Kaczynska, Samuel Kennedy, Lucia Martin, Anna Mayo, Giulia Schirripa, Vienna Shelley, Jessica Smith, Lucia Spelsberg-Hornsby, Fruzsina Vida, and Finn Walsh.
