Tuesday 6 September
Christopher is joining us as part of Capturing Craigavon - a community-led, PLACE-delivered, investigation into the history of the new town of Craigavon. This event is the final in a series of documentaries, assembled for their insights into the design history of the 20th century, with a particular focus on the post-war urban design and architecture style from which Craigavon emerged.
In preparation for the event, we asked Chris for a little background to the project.
What inspired you to make this documentary?
I grew up in Essex and spent a lot of time in Basildon as a child. It always had a sense of ‘otherness’ compared to other towns. This came from the architecture and textures and the intriguing sculptures and public art.
