Spaces For Creation – Legible Cities with Morag Myerscoughtalk • 10 Oct 2019 6:30pm–8:30pm
Artist-designer Morag Myerscough hosts a conversation on Legible Cities; how do we get around cities instinctively?
Continuing the series of conversations about urbanism and cultural space, Spaces For Creation brings together leading artists, architects, urbanists and public designers to discuss the relationship between public and creative space. Together, we will be looking at issues ranging from how to make a city legible through a creative identity, how public space is negotiated and how cities can establish a sustainable creative culture for the future.
In this edition, artist-designer Morag Myerscough will host a conversation on Legible Cities; how do we get around cities instinctively? What visual signifiers lead us to where we need to be? How can we make the experience of navigating a city easier, and ultimately, more fun?
Morag Myerscough is a London-based artist whose work is characterised by an engaging boldness, creating specific, local responses to each distinct audience that will see and experience the work, using it to create community and build identity. Morag makes places from spaces that people like to be in, that stimulate and often make you smile. Her eclectic breadth of work covers the conversion of a train to a café, a tweet building, a hospital ward and interpreting lots of types of buildings.
