Spaces for Creation: Morag Myerscough

Spaces for Creation is Site Gallery's series of conversations about urbanism and cultural space. The talks took place in 2019 and 2020 as part of the gallery's City of Ideas programme.

Artist-designer Morag Myerscough makes places from spaces that people like to be in, that stimulate and often make you smile. See the video below for Morag's edition of Spaces for Creation – 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?
