What can graffiti tell us about people, past and present? Find out about two York-based research projects exploring historic and contemporary graffiti – a collaboration between the University of York and English Heritage, and a project based at York St John University on the politics of mark-making. View and interpret the meaning behind historic graffiti, and then unleash your creatviity and represent these meanings yourself on a graffiti wall.
