"York has no dedicated social art space. York should have one. We want to create one ...and we want to create it on a barge."
In "The York Arts Barge" from PechaKucha Night York Vol. 8 Marcia Mackey and Christian Topman discuss their project that aims to convert a floating river barge into a dedicated arts centre, filling a need for which York currently lacks. Here they share their vision and inspirations for the barge, the positive impact it will have on the community, and the challenges they face in hosting art on the River Ouse.
