Open City walking tour

This walking tour, curated by artist Katja van Driel,  took delegates to various vacant properties in Preston City Centre, some of which were used for presentations by the visiting speakers. During the tour, actress Abigail Ramsdale read a series of conversations between van Driel and the owners and gatekeepers of selected properties to which she attempted to gain access. These were presented inside or in front of the buildings depending on whether access could be achieved, and provided an insight into the barriers which prevent the productive use of such spaces.
