PICTURE THIS Co-Design Exhibition launches at The Storey on the 15th November

This interactive exhibition draws together all the knowledge and ideas emerging from the events and tells the story of the journey 'Beyond the Castle' so far. PICTURE THIS allows everyone to be a co-designer

We are pleased to invite you to the launch of the PICTURE THIS CO-Design Exhibition at The Storey on Thursday the 15th of November.

Since April 2012 over 500 people have joined together on a journey to co-design a quality public space for the area ‘Beyond the Castle’. Through a series of fun public events, people aged between 3 and 92 have generated hundreds of creative ideas, drawings, stories, models ad proposals. This is helping define how the area around Lancaster’s historic castle and over the meadows to the quayside might be enhanced.

We are ending this phase of the project with PICTURE THIS an interactive exhibition that draws together all the knowledge and ideas emerging from the events and tells the story of the journey Beyond the Castle so far. The exhibition allows everyone to be a co-designer, you will be able to interact with what’s on show and add further contributions, opinions and ideas.

The ideas that emerge from the PICTURE THIS co-design exhibition will help define a shared aspiration and core values for the site. These will then be developed by the local community, Lancashire County and Lancaster City Councils to produce very broad proposals and concepts for the site in early 2013.

If you’ve not been to any ‘Beyond the Castle’ events so far then this is YOUR chance to get creative, think how the area could be made better and work with designers to bring your ideas to life. If you’ve already been involved in Beyond the Castle we still want your input. Come and get involved!
