November 17, 11:00 am - 3:00 pm
This is an online event.
Applied and participatory approaches within the humanities have the potential to not only help us understand but also actively change the world we live in. Building on the new connections made and community focus experienced during the 2020 lockdown, this creative community-based event invites the Clifton, York neighbourhood to join with York’s Traveller community to connect over traditional crafting and storytelling.
This online event consists of four separate 45-minute sessions. Each session focuses on a different traditional craft and is led by an expert artist from the Traveller community. All sessions begin with a short demonstration video and overview of the history of the craft and its role in Traveller heritage and culture. Attendees will then be invited to try the craft at home and join in the online conversation as they do this by posting comments and pictures. A Session Schedule and Materials List will be posted online one week before the event.
With permission, these online contributions may be reused after the event by the York Travellers Trust community to create a ‘Living Archive’ participatory film. This will be available for public viewing online after 1 December 2020.
