Abstract

This exhibition introduces the concept of ‘Yellowspace’ as a metaphor for shared social public space within the city. These spaces are crucial for cities and urban life. However such shared services and spaces are at risk everywhere as they fragment and splinter for various economic, political, and social reasons.This exhibition presented research on Belfast and Manchester in addition to a number of successful social, environmental, and construction projects from other cities. The research specific to Manchester took the unusual number of thematic walks and trails in Manchester as a methodological starting point. A selection of walking trails was studied to learn about how Manchester represents itself. The city was then walked and studied with a focus on the non-represented areas encircling the city centre. From this a Yellow Trail was created, searching for the social potential of these spaces. These sites are presented with a short narrative inviting people to critically reflect on the potentials and deficits of each location as a Yellow Space, and were published in a “Yellow Press” for circulation through out the city.
