York Death & Culture Walk

The York Death & Culture Walk (DaCWalk) is an interdisciplinary research project and pedagogical tool developed by DaCNet. The intention of this walk is to inspire the imagination, provoke conversation and provide insight and knowledge into death as a cultural matter which affects everyone in some form. Death matters, matter. Death is everywhere and ever-present and no-where more so than in the ancient and beautiful walled city of York. In walking the streets of York and listening to the podcasts on death issues the DaCWalk seeks to introduce participants in sensory and corporeal ways to people, landmarks and takes that define the city's history and long-standing relationship with death and death-practices.
