Event details

York Curiouser’s Co-Artistic Directors Hazel Colquhoun and Lara Goodband will guide you round In Between, the series of poems by John Wedgwood Clarke stencilled on the walls of York’s hidden passageways. In Between was originally installed in June 2014 to great acclaim. This year, York Curiouser has commissioned John Wedgwood Clarke to write a new poem to add to the collection, inspired by York’s Medieval stained glass. This walking tour forms part of York Curiouser’s research during 2015 and gives participants the opportunity to say what they would like York Curiouser 2016 to look like.
