The Eye Project — York Mediale


The Eye Project

5:30pm - 9:00pm

Castle Car Park

Castle car park Tower Street York YO1 9SA

A free outdoor film screening taking place on Clifford’s Tower, The Eye Project is part of 2019’s Castle Gateway community consultations. The result is an exciting new short film, made by the local community.
This film has been created by four different local artists, remembering the history of the Castle Gateway area, whilst celebrating its future possibilities.
Artists, Rich Corrigan, Jade Blood, Julia Davis Nosko and Mat Lazenby worked with hundreds of York’s young people to explore the ways we can shape and influence the future of Castle Gateway through a major development of the site.
The Eye Project is overseen by Kaizen Arts and English Heritage and will be shown from Castle Car Park between 17:30 – 21:00 on Saturday 25 January, as part of York Residents Festival. There will also be an opportunity for members of the public to have a say about the future of area during the screening.
Castle Car Park will be closed on 25 January for the event.
